Description vfiend 2008-03-31 12:02:18 UTC
Description of problem: When trying to remove aiksaurus-gtk that was installed
in the default install, PackageKit tells me it "cannot be remove, because
something depends on it". Aside from the horrible grammar, PackageKit should be
able to figure out the dependencies, since yum can.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.1.10

# yum remove aiksaurus-gtk

I've corrected the grammar in the backend in git, thanks. PackageKit can work
out the deps on a package, but this appears to be broken in the backend. If
GetRequires worked, than you would get UI "okay to remove additional packages".
