Description of problem:
After a fresh install of Fedora Core onto this machine, with no KDE
stuff (just a Workstation install iirc) updated R-C-P to a version
that actually works on Fedora and then experienced the following problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start R-C-P 1.2.7
2. Check the KDE Desktop Environment checkbox
3. Change your mind, uncheck (returned to original state)
4. Choose a package such as vim-x11 from an existing category
5. Click "Update" button which is now enabled (!)
Actual Results: A list of "missing" dependencies is provided, with no
hint to the user as to where these dependencies might be obtained, or
how exactly Fedora would have managed to install the affected packages
magically if they had been chosen during installation, rather than
Needless to say all the "missing" things are part of Fedora Core 1
Expected Results: The package vim-x11 gets installed, any real
dependencies should be resolved automatically.
List of "missing" dependencies includes
The full list looks suspiciously like the list of "mandatory" packages
for the KDE Desktop Environment package group.
This report is filed against a product which is no longer supported. It is very
likely that the problem is resolved in the current version of Fedora Core or
scheduled to be resolved with the new system-config-packages scheduled to land
in Fedora Core 5.
