Since yum is written in Python, here's something that might help you get started : .

I have a workstation and three laptops running Fedora Rawhide. I did
my daily update just now (I point to the Kent mirror rather than the
Fedora mirrors so as to ensure all machines see the same repository,
it updates mid-afternoon +00:00). Workstation and two laptops upgraded
fine. One laptop is having troubles with the packages:

gdm.x86_64                    1:
openmpi.x86_64                1.8.4-6.20150324gitg9ad2aa8.fc23
openmpi-devel.x86_64          1.8.4-6.20150324gitg9ad2aa8.fc23

trying to install them causes yum to fail:

Total size: 9.0 M
Is this ok [y/d/N]: y
Downloading packages:
Running transaction check
Running transaction test
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

though I am, not sure where the core is dumped to, it isn't .

It happens if I do gdm individually, the other two enforce each other
so come as a pair, and they have the same problem.

I have no idea how to work out what is going wrong here so as to fix
it, this is clearly a fault on the one laptop.

Any help tracking this down would be most welcome…
