Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 150170
de-selecting packages after failed attempt to install repeats errors
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:01 EST
If you run up2date --show-package-dialog, select a few repos, select
several packages to install, one of which has broken dependencies,
then proceed to install, you get an error indicating what the problem
is. If you go back, de-select that package, and attempt to install
the remaining ones, you get the same error. If you leave up2date,
start it again with this option, select the same repos, the same
packages except for the broken one, it works. It appears that the set
of packages to install is retained over going back.
The same problem is present in the repository selection. If you
select several repositories, go forward up to the package selection
window, then realize you selected too many repos, then you try to go
back, de-select some of them, and go forward again, you'll still get
packages from the de-selected repository listed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
up2date was replaced by pirut and put (package pirut) as of FC5. Only FC5 and
FC6 are currently fully supported; FC3 and FC4 are supported for security fixes
only. If this bug occurs in FC3 or FC4 and is a security bug, please change the
product to Fedora Extras and the version to match. If you can verify that the
bug exists in RHEL as well, please change the product and version appropriately.
The codebase for pirut and pup is quite different, but if a similar bug exists
in pirut and pup in FC5 or FC6, please change the product to pirut and the
version appropriately and update the bug report.
We apologize that the bug was not fixed before now. The status will be changed
to NEEDINFO, and if the bug is not updated with evidence that it is a security
bug or a bug that affects RHEL, it will be closed.
Closing per previous message.
