Install a package without dependancy. After hitting apply you will get a confirmation window, telling you that you need to install $packagename as a dependancy for $packagename. This is bogus of course :)

Tested with gnome-packagekit-2.28.1-1.fc12.i686

proposed fix for 2.28.1

to validate, apply patch to fedora rawhide/fc12beta and using gpk-application install mutrace.

expected results :

* package will be installed with no additional questions (except probably missing key)

current results:

* a dialog informing that mutrace is additionally needed will need to be accepted before installation could proceed

Looks like an easy fix. I'll ask Richard to look at this when he is back.
Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2009-10-29 06:54:20 EDT
Please can you try the build of gnome-packagekit here: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1776154

You will need to log off and back on to ensure the gpk-update-icon process has been restarted. Please provide feedback to whether this build fixes this bug. Thanks.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 13 development cycle.
Changing version to '13'.
