Errors on installing applications on Red Hat Linux

Link to this post 12 Jun 09

Hello there guys. I am learning to install applications on Linux Red Hat. I have managed to install an application called YUM that is an installer and updater. Now I get errors when trying to install. I get this error.

(process:3778): GLib-CRITICAL **: file gtimer.c: line 106 (g_timer_stop): assertion `timer != NULL' failed

(process:3778): GLib-CRITICAL **: file gtimer.c: line 88 (g_timer_destroy): assertion `timer != NULL' failed
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in ?
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 97, in main
result, resultmsgs = do()
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 470, in doCommands
return self.installPkgs()
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 836, in installPkgs
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 75, in doRepoSetup

File "", line 277, in populateSack
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/", line 40, in getPrimary
TypeError: Can not create index on requires table: near "NOT": syntax error

Thank you in advance guys.

Well the first thing I would do is make sure I'm root.
then reinstall Yum. then retry. If that doesn't work I'd google the error message.

Is sqlite installed? What exact distro are you using?
