sigh, it's a freaking text file, bugzilla :P

Comment 3 Zack Cerza 2007-03-26 16:33:39 UTC
Oh, heh, actually the failure is causes by being non-root.

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2007-03-27 18:38:44 UTC
I'm seeing this with repoquery as well.

Also seeing this. See attached debug output.

Comment 7 Chris Lumens 2007-04-23 14:37:23 UTC
Christopher - that is a different bug than the one originally addressed in this
report, and is tracked by bug 236999.

Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2007-04-24 22:01:02 UTC
This is fixed with CVS yum, at least the main part.  

I then get a different traceback since you've enabled the core repo which ends
up with a releasever of 6.92 and there isn't a valid mirrorlist for that. 
You're either going to need to 
  1) catch the RepoError in doRepoSetup()
  2) or individually setup the repos when you enable them (repo.setup())

Comment 9 Chris Lumens 2007-04-25 17:49:18 UTC
We weren't able to reproduce this on today's rawhide, so I'm closing this out.
