Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 165224
remove support for obsolete ignoredeps kickstart option
Last modified: 2014-10-19 18:54:40 EDT
Description of problem:
Support for "%packages --ignoredeps" was removed as of RHEL3 but the support for
parsing and setting the associated flags is still present. It should be removed
so as to alleviate any confusion about the state of that functionality.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Observe the fact that kickstart.py still supports --ignoredeps
ignoredeps is still parsed/handled but it does nothing save cause confusion
dead code must be purged
Might as well nuke this code from RHEL4 branch as well.
Please assign this bug to the developer who can modify the kickstart
documentation and move this issue to closure.
Which package will this fix appear in ? Please provide a link to the changed
docuemntation. I would like the customer to verify this so they can close this
The option has been removed and will not appear in the next release of this
manual. Keep this bug open until the manual is released so that the customer can
verify the fix.
--nodeps and --resolvedeps are deprecated in RHEL 5 and have been documented as
such in the Installation Guide.
