Description Thilo Pfennig 2005-05-11 10:03:57 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
I had an error in my configuration. yum displayed:
Options Error: Not a boolean: 9

I need to ask on IRC to find the error. It was just a line "enabled=9" in one repository in /etc/

I can imagine many people that are as stupid as i am ;) will have the same problem. But help would be possible! 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. change a line enabled=1 to enabled=9
2. make something like yum check-update

Actual Results:  yum does not respond but prints 
"Options Error: Not a boolean: 9"
and the help

Expected Results:  print something like:
"error in repository /etc/yum.repos.d/dag.repo line 4:
enabled=9 Options Error: Not a boolean: 9"
