Description of problem:
Removing the whole Mail Server group, returns a dialog with the message
Packages Not Found
The following packages could not be found on your system.
Installation cannot continue until they are installed.
On the console we see te following error:
Unselecting already uninstalled package imap
Unselecting already uninstalled package squirrelmail
Unselecting already uninstalled package sendmail-cf
Unselecting already uninstalled package postfix
Unselecting already uninstalled package spamassassin
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/MainWindow.py", line 90, in
dialog = UnresolvableDependenciesDialog
(sys.exc_value.unresolvable_dependencies, self.get_dialog ())
line 60, in __init__
model.set_value (iter, 0, formatRequire(dep))
line 15, in formatRequire
(name, version, flags) = req
ValueError: unpack tuple of wrong size
Removing other groups seems to suffer from the same problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start redhat-config-packages
2. Unselect Mail Servers group
3. Click Update
Actual Results: Empty list in dialog, OK doesn't work, application needs to be
exited by closing windows.
Expected Results: That it removed the packages.
This was fixed in 1.2.3, iirc. Please upgrade to the newest version available
I used this bug as a demonstration for interns how to report bugs. It seems we
are not using the latest updates. (up2date is broken) But we did verify with
Bugzilla if it was already reported.
(Responding this fast is very rewarding ;-))
What exactly is sushi ?
We've now made up2date work (manually installing from rawhide), and there's
indeed a newer redhat-config-packages. We'll test it for other bugs we've found.
