Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1014412
The skip broken option, if set in the preferences tab, shows as checked in the options tab, but is not used
Last modified: 2013-11-10 02:08:04 EST
Description of problem: When I use the "Preferences" tab to set "Skip Broken" to true, when yumex is restarted, the "Options" tab shows it checked, but the option is not passed to the yun backend. If I uncheck the option and re-check it in the "Options" tab, it is correctly passed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time (also on F-19 and F-20)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set the preference
2. Restart yumex
3. Try to run an update of "Rawhide" when there is a dependency problem. (This is, as you know, a common problem with Rawhide.)
yum-backend aborts update
Broken updates skipped
Note the comment under "how reproducible" that this "bug" is in the F-19 and F-20 yumex versions.
I suggested a severity of "medium" for this since the workaround is fairly simple, and broken dependencies are quite rare in active distributions.
See here how to test:
O.K., that version fixed the problem.
@Tim: Your make instructions had an extra "get" in the line. You might want to modify the page if you send the link to anyone else.
