Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 459170
gpk-application is confused by debuginfo packages
Last modified: 2008-10-14 08:58:03 EDT
Description of problem:
Install "diffstat" (via. yum install diffstat)
Enable fedora-debuginfo repo.
search for diffstat, you should now see:
[ ] diffstat-debuginfo
scroll to diffstat, and you'll see it's "installed" (and there's only one entry)
turn on filters => installed => only available
scroll to diffstat, now you have one "available" entry.
I can only assume this is actually the debuginfo one, although trying to install it fails.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-packagekit.x86_64 0.2.3-9.fc9 installed
Even better is that if you then turn the filter off then "diffstat" no longer has a check box ... but gpk-application thinks it's queued to install, so it'll stop any other installs but can't be turned off again (unless you know to go back to the filtered view :).
I -think- this is fixed in 0.3.0 -- the INSTALLED filter was fixed to check all packages rather than just shortcut by not searching the rpm pkgs when we are searching for available packages. I'm not sure if I can backport this just yet as I'm waiting for the yum pkgSack.searchNames many packages fix (too many SQL variables) to be pushed into F9.
