Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 589119
gpk-application fails silently to install package with dependency problems
Last modified: 2010-11-22 16:04:32 EST
Description of problem:
If you attempt to install a package which has dependency problems through gpk-application, you won't get any error message or such, it will simply stop the operation without any comment
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. (As of 05.05.2010) Attempt to install eclipse
2. Using yum via terminal, you will get notified about a dependency issue
3. gpk-applicatio simply stops the operation without any comment
Error dialogs should appear as in fedora 12
Can you get the output of both "pkmon --verbose" and "gpk-application --verbose" when the dep problem happens please. Thanks.

Output of pkmon --verbose
Attachments added for the eclipse test case.
I'm seeing the same behaviour in F14 (very late in the F14 Alpha timeframe).

I should note that I have gnome-packagekit-2.31.91-2.fc14.x86_64 installed.
This is fixed by the following PackageKit commit:

New PackageKit release is due in about 10 days time.

I'm hoping PackageKit-0.6.9 fixes this, right?
