Description of problem:
System>Administration>Software Sources will not let me check or uncheck any of the repositories (yes I am root).
System>Administration>Add/Remove Software will let me find and select packages but nothing happens when I click install. However, I can go to the terminal window and yum install those packages without problems.
If you tell me this is the wrong place to report this, please also tell me where I should have and how I should have found that out.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
22.214.171.124-18.fc9.i686 gpk-repo gpk-application
Steps to Reproduce:
1. No special setup - see description above.
This is a severe bug in that I can't add packages I need to do what I need to do.
Since you know it's gpk-repo that is giving you the problem, you can use:
rpm -qfi /usr/bin/gpk-repo
You'll note in the output that it comes from the 'gnome-packagekit' source rpm.
Thus the component this should be filed against is 'gnome-packagekit'.
Thanks! I see you have updated this report to point to the correct package. I
just updated my system, and the bug persists.
BTW, I didn't know I had to specify the full path to gpk-repo which is why I
couldn't find the correct component:
[root@T23 ~]# rpm -qfi gpk-repo
error: file /root/gpk-repo: No such file or directory
