Description MaxiPunkt 2014-01-06 11:30:10 EST
Description of problem:
Wanted do give dnf/PackageKit-hawkey a try.
Beside official Fedora-repos I'm using my own, local repo.

This repo has high priority-setting:
name=Repo-MaxiPunkt for Fedora $releasever - $basearch

yum/PackageKit-yum does honor this priority-setting, if "yum-plugin-priorities" is installed - meaning my own packages won't be replaced by other (newer) versions beloning to other repos, when doing a "yum update".

But dnf/PackageKit-hawkey doesn't care about "priority=1" and wants to update my packages, when doing an update.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
* dnf-0.4.10-1.fc20.noarch
* PackageKit-hawkey-0.8.15-1.fc20.x86_64

Must priority-setting be done in a different way for dnf/hawkey, or is this "just" a feature still to come?
Comment 1 Ales Kozumplik 2014-01-06 11:52:49 EST
Hey there, thanks for the report. The priorities option is supplied by the yum-plugin-priorities plugin which is not available for DNF yet. Assigning this somewhat lower priority for now, several pieces in the DNF API are missing yet to make an implementation possible.
Comment 2 Eduard Gotwig 2014-06-03 07:30:27 EDT
I depend on this function.

Is there no change for more than 5 months?
Comment 3 Ales Kozumplik 2014-06-12 04:07:40 EDT
Hello Eduard, there has been many changes since January, see e.g. [1]

Comment 5 MaxiPunkt 2014-07-14 13:21:34 EDT
Cool, thanks!

Would be great if you would backport next release of dnf including this fix to FC20 (official update-repos)...

Comment 8 MaxiPunkt 2014-07-29 15:26:23 EDT
Sorry, this fix doesn't work for me:

I've updated my system to new dnf/hawkey-version.
Some days later there are new updates are available for my system:

# yum update
Geladene Plugins: langpacks, priorities, refresh-packagekit
repo-maxipunkt                                                                                                    | 2.9 kB  00:00:00

--> Abhängigkeitsauflösung beendet

To be able to test new dnf-version, I have canceled these yum-updates.

But new dnf-version doesn't find ANY updates.
At least it doesn't try to overwrite my personal RPM's with higher priority-setting anymore:

# dnf update
Repo-MaxiPunkt for Fedora 20 - x86_64                                                                     11 MB/s | 110 kB     00:00    
Abhängigkeiten sind aufgelöst.
Nichts zu tun.

To be able to test new hawkey-version, I have uninstalled yum-backend for packagekit:
# yum erase PackageKit-yum

New hawkey-version does find the updates, BUT
it also wants to overwrite my personal RPM's with higher priority-setting!

So beside the other issue (dnf can't find updates available),
there still something is wrong with your recent fix.
Comment 9 Lubos Kocman 2016-04-19 08:24:15 EDT
Hi team

It's not working at all. This is currently a blocker for modularity project.

Why is it a blocker?

I can't use pungi's lookaside (hey if something is in this repo with super high priority ... don't make it part of result (e.g. this is already in another module). Both priority and cost are totally ignored and I can't really say what repo will be the result of query from :-P

Comment 10 Lubos Kocman 2016-04-19 09:03:29 EDT
Closing this particular bug, as it fixes one usecase. My usecase (.query()) is tracked in Bug 1328467
