KPackageKit __crashes__ trying to install .deb packages
Last modified: 2010-10-13 10:17:59 EDT
Description of problem:
KPackageKit crashes when instructed to install a .deb on Fedora 13. It seems like it doesn't validate first the files it tries to install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. From the Adobe site, download the Flash Player package (.deb flavour).
2. Try to install it with the KPackageKit.
KPackageKit should alert the user that Fedora only supports rpms. Afterwards, it should cleanly exit.
This is probably one of those cases of "don't do that!"
Try kpackagekit-0.6.1 ?
Yes it is a case of "Don't do that" but the newest version of kpackagekit 0.6.1 does fix the crash and you now get a warning message.
