Description Andrei ILIE 2010-10-04 18:17:20 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
   1. From the Adobe site, download the Flash Player package (.deb flavour).
   2. Try to install it with the KPackageKit.
Actual results:
   KPackageKit crashes.

Expected results:
   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 ?
Comment 2 Steven M. Parrish 2010-10-13 10:17:59 EDT
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.
