User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20061221 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
I don't know a lot about how to report this bug, but I was told to by the Yumex program before it crashed.  This crash has happened twice--both times as I was trying to "Process the Queue" with a few minor package installs.  Yumex performed a successful install between the two crashes.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add a package to the Queue
2. process the Queue

Actual Results:
got a crash error and an opportunity to save the crash dump file (pasted below into "Additional Information"

Expected Results:
Yumex should have proceeded with downloading and installing packages

Additional info:

Comment 1 Tim Lauridsen 2007-01-30 07:32:10 UTC
This error happens because yum metadata can't be loaded from the Dries repository.
in yumex 1.2.x & yumex 1.9.x, these kind of errors is catched and shown in a
more user friendly way.
I have no plans to fix it in yumex 1.0.x, i have limited time and will use it on
the most recent versions of yumex, Sorry.
