Description Rodd Clarkson 2007-07-23 00:58:24 UTC
Description of problem: It is possible to install packages with the package manager without the required dependencies being installed. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): yum-3.2.1-1.fc7 How reproducible: Very. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click Applications > Add/Remove Software 2. In the Browse Tab, Select Applications, Games and Entertainment and then Click Optional Packages 3. Select a package with requirements. (I'm using 'asc'. I've also had this problem with FlightGear and reproduced it with abuse.) Having selected a package, click Close. 4. Click Apply in the main window. 5. Click Continue in the Package Selections Dialog 6. You should get a dependencies added dialog. Click Cancel 7. Now, click Apply again in the main window. 8. Click Continue in the Package Selections Dialog (again). Actual results: Package manager downloads and installs only the package selected and not the dependencies. It also doesn't ask if you want to install the dependencies the second time around. Expected results: The package manager shouldn't be able to install a package without installing dependencies. It should prompt each time you try to install packages

I tested the problem above,and I as well ran into the same thing. It seems pirut/yum/whatever shows the dependencies, but after canceling and applying again, it thinks it's met them when it really didn't. It *should* have done the same dependency list again and not let anything happen until that is met.

I tested using yum itself and got the depends, but it wouldn't install by itself, or at least didn't see a way/test to do it. So must be on pirut end, or along those lines that is causing it.
