Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 181029
show what packages causes removal of current package in Update details
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:23 EST
When uninstalling packages others are removed for depencies (shown in details).
Please list, besides package name, the package which caused the dependency, e.g.
when deselecting mikmod, the details should list
xmms (requires mikmod)
Or give the user a choice of other affected packages and the option to keep some
dependencies scheduled for removal.
One problem with this from a UI perspective is what to do when there are
multiple packages that cause the removal. Do you show all of them or just one?
And what do you do when it's foo requires bar requires baz.
Not going to complicate the UI with this.
