As an aside, the most stable kernel for me is 126.96.36.199-12.fc14. Today, I was running kernel-188.8.131.52-18.fc14, and had a hard lock up while yum was waiting for the yes/no response to accept the update. The screen went blank, and when it came back, the keyboard and mouse were dead. Nothing worked, including alt-F2+. After rebooting by killing power, I got the following error when I tried to update.
Error: no such table: packages
I followed the instructions at RpmRecovery
, including dumping and loading the database, and rebuilding the indexes. That along with "yum clean all" didn't fix the problem. So I tried --noplugins, and it worked! Disabling plugins one at a time showed that yum-plugin-auto-update-debug-info is the problem. I reinstalled it, but the problem still exists.
I haven't been able to google anything useful yet, so I'm hoping someone has some ideas about how to fix the plugin issue.
Thanks in advance,
