Description David Timms 2006-03-08 15:09:04 UTC
Description of problem:
pup exception shown No such file or directory

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

How reproducible:
twice, but after reboot now it seems OK.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. pup
2. apply
Actual results:

Expected results:
completion or nice failure message.

Additional info:
- May have been while mirrors where getting populated with updates !
- After reboot, firefox wont work from gnome icon (starting web browser for ten
seconds then nothing).
- firefox at terminal returns near immediately with no error message.
- rpm -q firefox shows it isn't installed
- rpm -q yum shows it isn't installed either
(is this likely to occur when pup burns ?)
- /var/log/ does not show any activity with firefox / yum 
- It may have been a run where I tested suspend with freecell open, and then
turned the machine on later for resume. The network was up in ifconfig, but no
packets passing. Network icon disable/enable made it work again.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-03-13 18:42:18 UTC
It looks like your mirror isn't fully populated and you're using a file:/ path.
 Having repodata updated before everything else is generally a bad idea -- I'd
recommend looking into the --delay-updates and --delete-after flags to rsync to
help avoid things like this.

I'll try to put some more error checking into pirut for this case post-FC5, but
it's a bit pathological :)

Comment 4 Jesse Keating 2006-08-17 22:37:06 UTC
Closing as not an error.  Refile as an RFE for more pathological error checking
if necessary.
