kpackage crashes when uninstalling with dependencies
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:43:16 EDT
Description of Problem:
If you attempt to uninstall a package that other packages depend on,
without removing those other packages first, kpackage may crash instead of
giving an error message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
With certain packages it always happens.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert Install CD #3 and install mysql (which for reasons that totally
escape me is not installed when you do a "custom install" and select the
"SQL" group) along with all MySQL related packages like mysqlclient9,
mysql-devel, mysql-server, DBI-mysql, php-mysql, and qt-mysql using
2. Now attempt to uninstall just mysql with kpackage.
3. kpackage crashes. It will only work if you uninstall all of those extra
packages (mysqlclient9, mysql-devel, ...) before uninstalling mysql.
kpackage was dropped from distribution
