Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1284170
dnf does not take in account package provides when doing group install
Last modified: 2016-11-30 04:32:01 EST
Description of problem:
When doing groupinstall, dnf should probably resolve packages with respect to package provides.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run `dnf install @kde-software-development`
It has kdesdk-umbrello in "marking installed" list and no umbrello in "installing" list.
Same as `dnf install kdesdk-umbrello` - install umbrello package.
It should print the package name not a provide in "Marking installed" section.
Package name is umbrello, it provides kdesdk-umbrello and there is kdesdk-umbrello in comps.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
So far DNF treat it as package name only and it's demanded by relengs. If in future releangs want to (and agree) to packagelist mean provide then DNF could change honor that.
