Description Steve 2005-07-16 01:38:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
I have FC4 on 4 cd's. If I add or remove applications with system-config-packages sometimes it will not all me to and provide an error that it cannot update becasue the packages required are not available. 
add remove when it does allow 'update' the packager will not organize the packages I am trying to install. If it tells me 2 discs are needed, I will have to switch discs depending on whitch disc has the part of the package I am trying to install.
It would also be nice to integrate yum with package manager.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Add a package
1. Open package manager
2. Attempt to add Eclipse Development Environment
3. click update
4. see error message that states their are dependency issue- a list of programs will appear that also need to be installed, but package manager doesn't automatically install them
Succesfully updating, but using 2 or more discs..
1. I will constantly have to switch dics depending on where packages are located
2. I may have to switch between dics 1 and 2 multiple times.

Actual Results:  As stated

Expected Results:  Package manager should automatically detect dependencies when adding or removing programs
Package manager should organize the specific programs it needs acoring to what disc they are on. So once I've inserted a disc to add programs, I should not have to reinsert that disc later. Once disc 1 is used, it should not have to be used again.

Additional info:

Everytime I have an added package that requires more than one disc, I constantly have to switch discs when I should only have to use them once.
