Description Marcel Berlau 2008-05-21 14:05:19 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?
Comment 3 Marcel Berlau 2008-06-03 09:33:57 EDT
If this is possible?! I think that it is a good solution for new users, when
this will work correct in F9
Comment 4 Richard Hughes 2009-06-03 05:43:12 EDT
Not possible to backport, sorry. Too many other changes.
