Comment 1 Rahul Sundaram 2008-04-26 17:04:40 UTC
Run gpk-update-viewer on some broken repository and even if there is a single
dep failure, I am not allowed to update the other packages. Yum supports
--skip-broken to leave out the broken dependencies, skip packages and update the
rest. PackageKit should support this. 

Comment 2 Richard Hughes 2008-04-29 12:52:19 UTC
Robin - can we not just add .skipbroken=1 by default, and emit broken for the
packages that can't be updated?

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 10:12:54 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

I've added skip broken in rawhide when you do update-system.
