Description Marco Maccaferri 2007-11-15 04:44:39 EST
Description of problem:
Today's update showed a dependency issue (Missing Dependency: gecko-libs = is needed by package yelp), so I've enable the skip-broken option with
"yum --skip-broken update", the initial dependecy check worked, but after
downloading the packages the transaction check failed with the gecko-libs

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "yum --skip-broken update" with today's updates
Actual results:
Still failing with the dependency checks.

Expected results:
The skip broken option should not bring in broken dependencies.
Comment 1 Tim Lauridsen 2007-11-15 08:44:56 EST
skip-broken is a plugin from yum-utils, so i have changed the component to
the skip-broken is not catching all issue, it is only testing if each available
update can be depsolved without error alone, if not they are removed from the
I am working on a better solution, by integrating the 'skip-broken' feature into
yum, instead of in a plugin, it will make it better but there is some weird
issues it can't detect because, they are first detected in the rpm test transaction.

Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2008-03-11 01:40:05 EDT
skip-broken has now been merged into yum for rawhide and F9. I'm going to close
this bug as all future bugs on it should be there
