Description Enrico Scholz 2000-12-23 00:22:44 UTC
In the screen asking how to resolve missing dependencies, the choosen
option applies to *all*  packages. But often there are packages which are
really needed (so missing packages must be installed) and such which are
not necessarily but require a lot of other packages (e.g. in a non-KDE
environment a package linked against kde-libs requires the whole KDE base
and libs packages).

It would be usefully if the user can decide how the dependencies for a
*single* package shall be resolved. So the lower three radiobuttons
(install all packages, no packages or ignore deps) should be linked against
one entry in the missing dependency list and not affecting all.

When enabling multi-selection in the list the current behavior can be kept
by marking all entries when entering the screen.

Looks very similar to bug 8595.
