Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186782
yumex install seems ok, but result is not installed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
Using yumex I can select a package to be installed, then add it to queue,
and then process the queue. With some package (for example bittorrent) I
repeatedly install the package, all reporting from yum is that is installed ok.
However, it never really gets installed.
Using yum install bittorrent works fine.
Currently I use yumex to check what is still to be installed and then enter
yum install <xxx> <yyy> by hand.
This bug may or may not be related to the only other yumex bug in FC5
I could find: 186227 "sometimes installs instead of upgrades".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.99.14
It is not clear to me, when this occurs. I had it with several packages and
thought nothing of it, until it repeated itself with bittorrent, several times.
This was only solved when I used yum from the command line.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. select a package in "install"
2. add it to a queue
3. process the queue (safe)
Actual results: All reports are that install was successful.
Sometimes it is not.
Expected results: An install reported success, is in fact successful.
I do not have another example now, but will add one as soon as one occurs.
I have another example now, which I did not install using yum, so it is
repeatable (and I repeated it). The package is gnome-translate version
0.99-6.fc5 on X86_64. The package is on the extra repository.
Do you need to see specific output for this package?
If you ar running FC5 with SELinux = Enforcing then you should read this.
There is a problem when running yumex with SELinux = Enforceing see the article
how to resolve the issue.
