Description Rahul Sundaram 2007-07-30 17:53:35 EDT
Description of problem:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select taxipilot and click apply. 
2. Pirut shows dependencies. Cancel
3. Click install again
Actual result:

Pirut will happily install the dependencies

Expected results:

Pirut should be consistent

Additional info:

Yum does what it needs to correctly. This is a pirut specific issue. Moreover
the problem is not just with installing packages but also removing packages.
Pirut with ignore the dependencies and remove a package or not warn the second
time when removing packages and dependencies. This can be a disaster if you try
and remove a critical package.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-08-07 17:50:17 EDT
Can you try with the versions of pirut and yum in -updates-testing as they
should fix this 
Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2007-08-07 20:36:56 EDT
Nope. They haven't fixed the problem. 
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-12 14:44:47 EDT
I can't reproduce this any more with the current packages.  It definitely was a
problem at one point, but it seems good to me now.  If you can reproduce, please
give specific versions of yum and pirut used and make sure they're the latest ones.
