yum skip-broken broke?



Shortly after upgrading yum to yum-3.2.4-2.fc7

I noticed this error:

Resolving Dependencies
**** Checking packages for dependency problems
**** Checking for dep problems  : perl-GD - 2.35-2.fc6.i386

    (rescode, restring) = self.base.resolveDeps()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/depsolve.py", line 710, in resolveDeps
    CheckDeps, checkremoves, checkinstalls, missing = self._resolveRequires(errors)

    thisneeds = self._checkInstall(txmbr)

    provs = self.tsInfo.getProvides(*req)

    result = self.getOldProvides(name, flag, version)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/transactioninfo.py", line 393, in
getOldProvides
    for pkg, hits in self.rpmdb.getProvides(name, flag, version).iteritems():
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'getProvides'

But if I change the value in skip-broken.conf: check_always = 0
then I get this:

So, is the skip-broken plugin broke?  Or is it even needed anymore?

Thanks.
