Using packagekit collections to delete asian fonts deletes openoffice
Last modified: 2011-06-27 13:20:34 EDT
Description of problem:
Under Fedora 13, Packagekit "Package Collections", removing any of these
font support packages: arabic, armenian, georgian, hebrew, inuktitut,
lao, tajik, urdu, venda also takes out all or most of Openoffice:
The list for arabic:
I did'nt bother transcribing the hit-list for the others, but it
The listing that included openoffice was displayed after the "apply" button was pressed. I did not let the removals run to completion (except the
first time, which necessitated a full re-install-- what else went down?).
I did not find that other asian fonts support packages proposed to
take out openoffice, but most proposed to take out assamese, and
some of the M17 base packages as well.
I did not test the chinese, japanese, korean, or russian packages;
(Didn't plan to remove them).
I have run the test/survey on three different installations of Fedora 13
on two different machines with different hard discs (both ATA and SATA)
The Fedora installations were defaults, replacing the existing fedora installation (10, 11, 12, or 13). The only additional software installed was vnstat.
Possible problem in Packagekit database?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible:Use PackageKit 'Package Collections' to select font support for removal. Clicking 'Apply' button brings up proposed supplementary deletion list, which includes openoffice system files.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open "Add-Remove" programs; select "package collections."
2. Highlight "Arabic", Unclick installed box; click Apply button
Window appears with files to be additionally deleted, includes Openoffice
Should'nt delete openoffice!

Can you do this using "yum groupremove foo" on the command line?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '13'.
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 13'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 13 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:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
