Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 446704
Add/Remove Software doesn't allow install or remove of packages
Last modified: 2008-06-03 09:28:52 EDT
Description of problem: When I go to Add/Remove Software, and I see a package I
want to install or remove, I click on the "Install" or the "Remove" button but
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gpk-application 0.1.12
How reproducible: Very (had this on multiple installations of F9 from the Live CD).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Add/Remove Software
2. Select a package
3. Select "Install" or "Remove"
Package should be installed or removed.
This problem also exists on my 64-bit Fedora 9 installation on an Intel Q9300 &
DG33FBC motherboard. Maybe it's somehow related to the problem that I couldn't
install the additional software like I'm used to (repository not found or
something...) during the Fedora 9 installation from the DVD?
I have the similar problem,in addition, when I add/remove software and click on
items on the left, nothing appear on the right, but when I search packet by
entering a name and clicking the find button, a lot of packets appear.
Me too, However it did work with the version that's on the release DVD
and has subsequently stopped in the last day or so - This is 32 bit
I have the same problem on a number of intel machines
The group list may stop working if you have added other broken repositories. Try
disabling all but the fedora repository in "software sources" and then try
clicking the group list.
For the nothing happens problem, are you sure you're not running as the root user?
I tried running it as another user and it worked. Amazing! Now I have to be
non-root to get privileges to run programs? Please don't go the route
SuSe/Freespire and other distros where you have to use hours to figure out how
to run programs because root can't login.
