Description Rahul Sundaram 2014-10-17 21:05:55 UTC
Description of problem:

Note that dnf wants to *install* VirtualBox-guest because I want to remove another package.  Also it doesn't summarize how many packages are removed or what the size savings are.

sudo dnf remove libjpeg-turbo

Thats probably because DNF tries to keep on system all packages dependent on the removed package. It downloads another package that provide this feature.

Here it is ;)

This kind of bugs only slows DNF team down while it almost certainly is not a bug so giving very low prio.

Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2014-11-04 00:22:54 UTC
The summary shows what happens when dnf decides to install some other package which i didn't ask for.  what i was looking for is a summary of what would happen if dnf just did what was asked (ie) remove the package I asked it to.

Not sure why you think this is a low priority but this behavior is pretty surprising.  Another example of what I ran into today.

# sudo dnf remove esmtp

This can't possibly be the right behavior.

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2014-11-04 02:15:24 UTC
You asked to remove package XYZ, so libsolv tries to find the package set with the least changes compared to the current one that does not contain XYZ. That package set may contain packages that were not in your current package set. This is just the definition of a SAT solver.

Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2014-11-04 03:55:26 UTC
Sure, it might be fine from a sat solver perspective.  Just wouldn't be considered expected behavior unless the sat solver can limit itself to my current package set. 

When I say dnf remove foo, what I am expecting it to show, is a removal list of foo and its dependencies.  Whether bar when installed can close the dependency set in a different way is irrelevant to me.  If I wanted it to considered the entire repository I would prefer to ask for that.

Comment 5 Vít Ondruch 2014-11-04 07:22:40 UTC
I kind of like this feature.

For example when you have installed ruby and some libraries which depends on ruby, it is expressed by Requires: ruby(release). So if you say "dnf remove ruby", the solver understand it as "hmm, he wants to remove ruby package, but he probably wants to keep the other libraries, so how to satisfy the ruby(release) requirement?" and then he figures out that JRuby provides ruby(release) as well, so it goes ahead, removes ruby (mri) but tries to install JRuby. That is more or less exactly what you said.

Unfortunately you are used to different behavior. In case of ruby, you should be probably more precise and use something like "dnf remove 'ruby(release)'" to achieve that goal (have not tested this).

But I agree that, additional flag forcing the old behavior, something like "--remove-only", would be nice.

Comment 6 Radek Holy 2014-11-04 09:06:12 UTC
Rahul, be so kind and bother with filling expected results as well as a reproducer (since it cannot be reproduced with a default DNF installation) in the future please. You *should not* expect mind reading in case of DNF (opposed to YUM). You would need to request a plugin for such case. And the same applies for its maintainers. Opening such a *bugs* you risk that they will be closed as NOTABUG. Bacause what you see is expected behavior. DNF does what you said: "removes libjpeg-turbo" while trying to preserve a functional system by fulfilling the missing requirements. We (as well as you, I hope) don't want to have a long discussion in every your bug just to understand what are you trying to say.

So I suggest closing this as NOTABUG while keeping you the right to open a well specified RFE or stating explicitely that this report is the RFE.

Comment 7 Rahul Sundaram 2014-11-04 12:32:53 UTC
@Radek,  If you want to reclassify it as an RFE, feel free to do that.  I did clearly state my expectations in the first bug comment (don't install new packages when I am trying to remove existing ones.  Zero mind reading required here) and provided two different tests to confirm the problems I am running into.   What further information do you really need? Please be specific.

Comment 8 Radek Holy 2014-11-04 12:43:17 UTC
Well I miss a working reproducer as the two comments cannot be reproduced with the default DNF installation and I miss what you expect DNF should do in such cases. Do you expect it to fail because you are trying to remove a requirement of another installed package (like 'rpm -e') or do you expect it to remove all the dependent packages or something else?

Comment 9 Rahul Sundaram 2014-11-04 15:16:16 UTC
I don't know what you mean by default dnf installation.  afaik, there is no such thing.  If you want to see esmtp getting installed, do a installation of any packages that depend on it.  That is simple enough.  Let's say,

# dnf install redhat-lsb

I already did explain what I wanted to happen - remove all the dependent packages.  c.f yum behavior for the same test case.

Comment 12 Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2014-11-05 10:02:35 UTC
This could be a special case and I'll open a separate bug if required, but:

- On a freshly installed F21 Beta workstation (dnf-0.6.2-1), try to install another desktop group. It'll fail, since fedora-release-workstation and fedora-release-nonproduct conflict. I need to check up to see how to get around this. I expected to be able to remove fedora-release-workstation, and then continue. When I try to remove fedora-release-workstation, this is what I get:

    [asinha@localhost ~]$ sudo dnf remove fedora-release-workstation

Now, if I go through with this, I expect fedora-release-server to again conflict with fedora-release-nonproduct.. which brings me right where I started. Wouldn't removing fedora-release-workstation, firewall-config-workstation and replacing them with fedora-release-nonproduct/firewalld-config-standard be a smaller change from the SAT solver perspective?

yum, on the other hand, tries to remove almost my complete system and errors when it hits systemd in the dep chain, saying it's protected. Not any better in my case, but a little more expected, perhaps? In any case, looks  like the products are mutually exclusive at the moment.

(In reply to Radek Holy from comment #14)
> Ankur, try "dnf --allowerasing group install <the-environment>".

That seems to resolve the conflict issue. Thanks Radek. When I do the 

dnf --allowerasing install fedora-release-nonproduct 

followed by groupinstall "KDE Plasma Environment", it seems to have pulled Cinnamon in somehow. Unfortunately, I didn't collect debug input this time :/

It should be reproducible, though - quite a vanilla install. 


Comment 17 Radek Holy 2014-11-07 09:53:18 UTC
That would be another issue. BTW, the command I suggested (without swapping fedora-releases as an intermediate step) did not work?

Comment 18 Honza Silhan 2014-11-10 13:11:28 UTC
I think I've seen issue when Cinnamon is unexpectelly pulled in. IMO it's again because of package by provides selection which is different in dnf than in yum. Eigher package from group KDE Plasma Environment should require package name instead of provide name or the provided package that is supperior should have benn defined as "Suggests" (bug #1149160).


Comment 19 Rahul Sundaram 2014-11-11 02:06:08 UTC
Your explanation doesn't explain what I see when I do yum remove esmtp.  At the minimum this difference in behavior between yum and dnf needs to be documented.  I currently have no ability to tell dnf just to remove a package and its dependencies *without* prompting me to install new packages.

Comment 20 Honza Silhan 2014-11-12 15:47:54 UTC
We will look deeper at original case and case from comment 11 to see what happens and come with solution (switch?).

Comment 21 Rahul Sundaram 2014-11-12 15:50:34 UTC
A switch would work fine IMO.  Thanks!

Comment 22 Bob Gustafson 2014-12-09 13:21:40 UTC
One of the nice things about libraries is that they can be shared by many different packages. This results in a smaller disk footprint and a smaller RAM footprint (assuming dynamic linking).

Different packages share libraries with other packages.

When you do a remove (whether yum or dnf) of one of those packages, if the dependencies are removed too - then there will be several other packages that will not work any more.

The solution to this problem is for yum or dnf to maintain a database of dependencies which shows which packages depend on them.

If no other packages depend on a dependency, then it can be safely removed (the orphan..)


Check to see how other distributions do this task:


Comment 23 Kevin Kofler 2014-12-09 15:38:50 UTC
The depsolvers are not that stupid, you just misunderstood what we mean by "removing dependencies". What is really meant is removing reverse dependencies, i.e., packages that depend on the package being removed, which obviously need to go away too. Normal dependencies (packages the package being removed depends on) do not get removed by normal depsolving. (The depsolver may or may not offer an "autoremove" feature that tries to do that, but only if nothing else depends on the library, and it also needs to avoid removing applications by accident. Yum has such a feature these days, I don't know if it has been implemented in DNF, because I honestly don't care. IMHO, those features do more harm than good.) The issue in this bug report is not that DNF is removing the wrong package, but that it is INSTALLING packages to perform the remove.

Comment 24 Bob Gustafson 2014-12-09 15:53:58 UTC

OK, got it. My thought was that you were still trying to solve the 'overactive YUM remove' problem which I noted several years ago in these bug reports.

YUM still seems problematical - see the last paragraph of Comment #12 in this bug report.

Why does dnf want to install those extra packages?


Comment 26 Gene Snider 2015-01-17 01:15:18 UTC
For some reason, installing rhino causes the problem.  Just try installing rhino with yum and dnf, and you see the extra packages being pulled in with dnf.


Comment 27 Honza Silhan 2015-01-19 13:07:18 UTC
Gene, there are many solutions for depsolving problem. DNF choosed one, yum another (with hawtjni-runtime).

Comment 28 Jan Zeleny 2015-01-19 16:22:28 UTC
Shouldn't dnf choose the solution with the lowest number of packages as the better one?

Comment 29 Honza Silhan 2015-01-20 20:14:24 UTC
Gene and Jan, this has to do with different selection of package provides (see bug 1183835)

I can see another real problem in this behaviour. There is currently no way how to uninstall a dependency with all the packages that depend on it and now I cannot think of any way how to discover the packages that depend on the dependency (other than "yum remove"). So, if I, for some testing reasons, need to uninstall the dependency but I don't remember which package pulled it in, I have no way how to remove it.

I'm not saying that this behaviour is wrong. We just need a mean (command/switch) that allows user to remove the whole dependency tree.

This is the right mind set. The current behavior has its valid use cases as well. Once both behaviors are implemented (replacing the package with another one vs. removing the entire subtree), we can decide which one to use by default but that's another discussion.

Yes, the problem is lack of information at the moment of decision.

You need a database of all packages along with what package(s) they are a dependency of

When a request comes along to delete a package (del_pack), the list of package dependencies is used (one at a time) as a key (key_pack) into this new database.

If the key_pack is only a dependency of the del_pack, then it too is deleted. If the key_pack has other dependencies, then it is not deleted. In this case, the new database key_pack entry has the dependency for the del_pack removed.

I think other package managers have this kind of database to manage deletions.

Comment 34 Honza Silhan 2015-03-17 15:25:14 UTC
The remove command deletes whole dependency tree instead of replacing the removable packages with other available packages. Fixed in the upstream.

Comment 35 Radek Holy 2015-03-18 11:06:53 UTC
I'd just add that if the previous behaviour was useful to anyone, feel free to open an RFE with the use case and we'll add a new command/switch.
