Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 504136
Add support for PackageKit service packs
Last modified: 2013-03-13 01:45:14 EDT
Description of problem:
PackageKit has the ability to create what is called service packs used for offline software installation. These are basically tar balls
# file netbeans-fedora-11-i686.servicepack
netbeans-fedora-11-i686.servicepack: POSIX tar archive
Ark should recognize and be able to extract files with this extension.
Feature requests probably best sent upstream, but we'll do what we can.
I think the RFE here was just for Ark to treat .servicepack as a tarball. I agree KPackageKit needs support for them too.
Yes. Kevin Kofler is correct. This was wrongly reassigned to KPackageKit.
sorry, my bad for not reading the original report careful enough.
Looks like ark "just works" if the
is added to ark.desktop's
Now, to decide if we want this to be preferred over packagekit's or not (testing kpk support here)
kpk doesn't seem to support it, but that may be related to bug #499690
It should be a trivial patch to KPackageKit to enable this functionality.
OK, support added to kdeutils-4.2.4-2 and kdeutils-4.2.90-1
Rex, I know we have a fix for this based on the mimetype but do you want me to send this up to KPK and get it integrated there?

The only fix I'm aware of is for kdeutils/ark (for which I just sent upstream).
So, whatever can be done to help on the kpackagekit end of things, I'm all for it.
