Description Eric Harrison 2005-10-28 23:35:49 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050926 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
yumex ignores the "enabled" flags set in /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo, it is hard-coded to enable the base, updates-released, and extras repositories and to disable all other repositories.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change the default "enabled" settings in some of the /etc/yum.conf.d/*.repo config files
2. Start yumex
3. Click on "Repos"
4. Note that base, updates-released, and extras will be selected, all other repos deslected, independant of the /etc/yum.conf.d/*.repo settings.

Actual Results:  Yumex reads the yum repositories, but ignores the "enabled" flags set on those repos

Expected Results:  Yumex would match yum's enabled repos

It is the way yumex is designed to work, in yumex you can make profiles with
diffent repositories selected, som you in a fast can select group of
repositories to use.
Maybe there sould be a profile called "enabled" there always contains then
repositories enabled in the *.repo files. 
Comment 2 Eric Harrison 2005-10-29 01:49:34 EDT
A DEFAULT profile called "enabled" that contains the repositories enabled in the
*.repo files would be perfect!

I really like the profiles concept. Being able to quickly select a group of
repositiories is a nice feature. I don't mean to suggest that this feature
should be removed or modified, only that the default behavior is changed.

The *default* profile needs to match the yum *.repo files. Users expect to be
able to switch back-and-forth between using yum from the command line and using
yumex as a gui front-end to yum. Yumex, as a gui-frontend to yum, should behave
the same as yum (at least by default).

Please note that this is not an imaginary or hypothetical issue. I am aware of
several systems that have been damaged due to yumex's unexpected behavior of
ignorning customizations to yum repositories.

Comment 4 Tim Lauridsen 2005-10-29 02:00:44 EDT
I will make a *defailt* profile there contains the current yum enabled state and
use it as the default profile when yumex starts.
Comment 5 Tim Lauridsen 2005-11-03 04:29:42 EST
In the current development branch in CVS(0.43), i have made the 'Std' profile
reflect the current enable state in yum.conf and *.repo files.
It will be released in Yum Extender 0.44.
