Description of problem:
I used up2date 10-30-2003 and it had to update about 20 packages.
During it installation of kernel-source up2date died because it could not
install the package. The problem now is, that all packages that where to be
installed after kernel-source are de-installed!
Now, on my system openoffice and, of course, kernel-source are missing! There
were another 10 packages that might not be there, but unfortunately I updated in
a console window so there is no scrollback buffer available to find out what
other packages are missing.
I can live with this happening during the test-phase of fedora, but I think this
is a showstopper for production!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a package that exits with an error together with some good packages
2. up2date --update
3. look at rpm-database, all packages that were to be installed after the bad
one should be missing
Expected Results: At least there should be an error message, that packages are
missing now. Best would have been to rollback the install / or to continue
installation and then to show an error message that the defective package could
not be installed
Not exactly the same bug, but it's a symptom of the same underlying problem.
Too bad it's a WONTFIX :-(
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 106514 ***
This looks like a closer relation to my bug #108652 than the one it's been
marked as duplicating here.
Well, it's two bugs: (i) up2date didn't sanity-check before handing packages to
the rpm transaction (108652), and (ii) rpm transaction failed and removed
packages (106514). Unfortunately, it can only be a dup of one bug in bugzilla.
And then, since it's a dup, it doesn't matter all that much anyway.
