gpk-application for GNOME don't resolve depencies correct during deinstallation kernel
Last modified: 2009-06-03 05:43:12 EDT
I want to deinstall an old kernel via the gpk-application tool. So I select the
old kernel and klick remove.
Then gpk told me that he want due to dependencies of other packages to remove
But in the message you can read, that these are packages which are important
for the system like FUSE, Xorg-driver and 2 or 3 others.
And you can see that for example an webcam-driver which should be removed has
an dependency with the actuall kernel who should stay.
So i took the terminal an write "yum remove <kernelversion>" and then yum
remove the kernel without any warnings about dependency-problems.
Sure, the problem is that we are not checking if other packages with the same
name can provide the requires. I'm not sure what the solution is here. I'll work
on a fix now.
Fixed in git master, commit 9e2e8562f85f8234567dc6c6a1226e2e4e41a5ac
Do you want me to backport this for F9?
If this is possible?! I think that it is a good solution for new users, when
this will work correct in F9
Not possible to backport, sorry. Too many other changes.
