2. Run gpk-application and install a package that has dependencies that are not
yet installed.

Looking at http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/i386/repodata/primary.xml.gz,
the adobe rpm seems to "provide" many insane things. We can't fix it as we don't
have the sourcerpm. If you use yum, rather than yumex, do you have the same problem?

Don't think it's a repo issue as this is not happening when using yum either.
Please advise if you need more info.

I see this bug too.  This behaviour really feels quite intrusive.  And when using yum directly, AdobeReader is not required.

I experienced this when installing GREYCstoration-gimp.  Packagekit was telling me that AdobeReader_enu-8.1.2_SU1-1 was a required dependency. So i installed GREYCstoration-gimp using yum and AdobeReader was not required.

Interestingly enough,if I go to Packagekit and highlight the installed  GREYCstoration-gimp, and click on "depends on" Packagekit still tells me that AdobeReader is a dependency.

I think I've fixed this one in git master -- I'll backport to 0.2.x if it fixes some other problems reported by people. The crux is that PackageKit wasn't prefering already installed packaged that provide the dep, rather using the random list provided by yum.
