Any idea who's bug this is anyways?
$ repoquery -ql crystal-project
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/repoquery", line 806, in <module>
File "/usr/bin/repoquery", line 803, in main
File "/usr/bin/repoquery", line 473, in runQuery
UnicodeEncodeError: 'latin-1' codec can't encode character u'\uf003' in position 25663: ordinal not in range(256)
It's been most annoying due to its wholesale breakage of my favorite
"repoquery -qal |grep foo" without providing any helpful info.
It appears the problem stems from some corrupt filenames in
crystal_project.tar.gz: crystal_project/*/apps/softwareD???.png Where
those three oddball 8-bit chars are 0xEF, 0x80 and 0x83.
But how on earth did the buildsys let that crap into fillists.xml.gz
anyways? And are spaces and other 8-bit grunge really valid in the
And why does yum-utils/python choke on it so badly, imagining that their
is 16-bit Unicode involved?
