>From the notes on the "bug" you would have to have 4.5/os/$basearch/
instead of $releasever/os/$basearch/ to get the "bug". Also yum update
or upgrade should not break anything unless you have packages from
elsewhere and murked about with the configs. I have looked on the
last month's list and not seen :-
- people whose machines took weeks to autoupdate.
- people whose production machines were broken by 4.6 to 4.7
Clearly Lutz's situation is unique and he has not told us the whole story.
