Unable to remove some packages using the PK GUI
Last modified: 2009-11-18 16:10:34 EST
I'm unable to remove some packages using PK's GNOME interface. For example rhythmbox is clearly installed but the PK GUI shows it as being not installed, so I cannot uninstall it... Same for some other packages IIRC.
Is there an update for rhythmbox available? If you turn off the "Newest" filter, can you see multiple versions?
You are right again... The default only shows the latest version, regardless of if there is any older version already installed. This (and showing multiple versions of the same package) doesn't feel right to me...
IMHO gpk-application's primary aim should be installing new packages or remove ones that are no longer needed (it's listed as "Add/Remove software" in the menu after all). For updating packages, we have the gpk-update-icon/viewer. As it currently works, gpk-application also seems to be more update-oriented.
Richard, any comments? Is this an issue?

F10 PK is very old now, and I'm pretty sure it's using the old NEWEST filtering logic. I would be pretty wary of updating the version in F10 now.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Based on Richard's last comments and the fact that F10 is nearing EOL going to close this as WONTFIX. IF you find this issue is still present in later releases please reopen and update the release information.
