I’m having this problem with openSUSE Factory Gnome x86_64 (which I installed yesterday): zypper shows an error message instead of asking me if I want to continue. For example:
su -c 'zypper in chromium'
[summary of the transaction]
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::exception_detail::clone_impl<boost::exception_detail::error_info_injector<boost::io::bad_format_string> >'
what(): boost::bad_format_string: format-string is ill-formed
Cancelled (core dumped)
Is this a bug? Should I file it?
For now, the only way to install or upgrade or remove a package is to use Yast2’s package manager.
