Description John Dvoracek 2008-05-21 00:30:03 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008043010 Fedora/3.0-0.60.beta5.fc9 Firefox/3.0b5

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):  gpk-repo gpk-application

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. No special setup - see description above.

Actual Results:
Nothing happens.

Expected Results:
See description.

Additional info:
This is a severe bug in that I can't add packages I need to do what I need to do.
Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2008-05-21 09:38:07 EDT
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'.
Comment 2 John Dvoracek 2008-05-21 13:28:32 EDT
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
