Description Bryan O'Sullivan 2009-04-01 15:43:04 EDT
Last night, I installed a rawhide version of ghc 6.10.1 in place of the F10 version I had been running. I also had packages such as ghc-X11 installed at the time. When I ran "ghc-pkg list" after the update, the X11 and other such packages were no longer visible.

We need to develop a mechanism to make it possible to make minor updates to ghc without requiring that all devel packages be reinstalled afterwards :-(

Oh hmm that is bad and "should not happen"...
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2009-05-19 05:19:35 EDT
Are you sure?  I just tried in i386 f11 downgrading to f10 and back up to f11 ghc
and X11 package appeared for me all along.

package.conf is already marked %config(noreplace) though - I thought that should take care of it.

(We should really move package.conf to /etc like debian, but I think that is another story.)
