Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 15196
GnoRPM fails to install SRPM packages
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
Insert e.g. the powertools CD
Press the "Install" button
In the list offered, pick any SRPM so it is checked
Press the "Install" button on the install dialog
The operation returns immediately. No SRPM has been installed. No error
message is given.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Gold-release
Tim, you seem to be hacking on this lately..
Has this ever worked properly? The code seems to explicitly avoid installing
source RPMS. (Overriding that causes a progress dialog to be displayed but
doesn't seem to actually install anything..).

Here's a patch that seems to fix the bug.
Patch applied in gnorpm-0.9-24.
Still happens on RC1 using the SRPMS Sources CD.
