Description Jonathan Blandford 2008-03-24 17:24:30 EDT
SSIA.  Basically, it seems to try to handle them as normal rpms and fails.
Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2008-03-25 20:20:05 EDT
What should we do in this case? Try to install them or show a message saying we
can't install .src.rpms?

If it's the latter then I think this should be a check in the backend, as a
src.rpm seems backend specific to me. ERROR_ENUM_CANT_INSTALL_SOURCE_PACAKGES
seems most sane to me. Robin, is this possible to check in the backend?
