Description Gene Czarcinski 2002-04-07 17:21:17 UTC
Description of Problem:
Performing an up from 6.2 to 7.2.93, emacs, emacs-el, and lots of kde-i18n*
packages installed during upgrade but NOT in original system

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

6.2 -> 7.2.93
How Reproducible:
create 6.2 system with gnome + kde but NO emacs.  Then do upgrade to 7.2.93

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:
bloat installed

Expected Results:
minimum extra such as sawfish but NOT emacs

Additional Information:
The original 6.2 system used about 860MB of disk space.  The upgraded system
used over 1800MB of disk space.  The emacs and kde-i18n packages are just the
most obvious.  There are likely lots of others.

Comment 5 Gene Czarcinski 2002-04-08 13:11:02 UTC
I have found that the same packages have been added in a 7.2->beta4 upgrade.  If
you need the info from that system, just ask.

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2002-04-09 00:40:56 UTC
kde-i18n-* are added due to movements of kde translations.  emacs and emacs-el
are added from files moving from the gettext package.  anaconda's orphan file
handling is probably too aggressive for today.  Too late to make changes for
this release, though.

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2002-06-28 04:11:10 UTC
Fixed by changing the upgrade algorithm

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified

so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
