system-install-packages does not work
Last modified: 2008-04-12 12:53:45 EDT
Description of problem:
The system-install-packages program does not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum remove -y hpijs || :
Error dialog saying:
Failed to install
No such file ''
Package should be installed.
Worked fine in Fedora 8.
Right now system-install-packages is a symlink to gpk-install-file,
but s-i-p can install files or packages
What we need is a wrapper in our packaging that:
- Checks if the arguments exist, if so does install-file
- Otherwise does install-package
- Dialogs if a mixture is specified
I'll work on that today. (We should actually change things to use
gpk-install-package directly, I think, in the long term.)
I've committed a wrapper script and the .spec file changes to package CVS.
This can be closed when a package gets built and pushed.
Owen, you sure you committed it? - i can't see any such change in CVS/devel.
step 1: commit
step 2: write the above comment
step 3: notice that the commit failed with a conflict
step 4: merge, kick off a local build to make sure that the merge was OK
step 5: go off and do something else, forget about it
Now actually commited.
I've built this for rawhide and F9.
