Updated pirut packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The pirut (Package Install, Remove, and Update Tool) packages provide a set of graphical tools for managing software.
When pirut was used to edit a repository that did not have a ".repo" file but was instead provided by a yum plug-in, such as RHN, pirut terminated unexpectedly. This update provides a patch that ensures an error message is displayed for repositories that cannot be edited and pirut no longer crashes in the described scenario.
Users of pirut are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
