Description Orion Poplawski 2011-02-11 23:05:27 UTC
Description of problem:

During text mode install got missing dependencies warning.  Output is listed in one column, e.g.:


and so on.

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

Comment 1 Orion Poplawski 2011-02-11 23:28:54 UTC
After this the install errors with:

There was an error running your transaction for the following reason(s0: required package.

but the text scroll area is empty.  Logs indicate an issue with the lyx missing dependencies:

16:12:40,694 ERR anaconda: required package: libboost_regex-mt.so.1.44.0()(64bit) is needed by lyx-2.0.0-0.11.beta3.fc15.x86_64
16:12:40,695 ERR anaconda: required package: libboost_signals-mt.so.1.44.0()(64bit) is needed by lyx-2.0.0-0.11.beta3.fc15.x86_64

This is new behavior too, isn't it?  I thought it would continue in previous releases.  No option to continue here.

Martin - This is fixed by 4a2b00e7376f200de85f978b2dbccfb27903d9a9 from rhel6-branch that just needs to be cherry-picked.

Orion - You can't continue there like you can in graphical mode because there's no text mode package selection screen to go back to.

Adding to the NTH F15Alpha-accepted NICE-TO-HAVE tracker.  It doesn't appear that the text corruption is fatal.  IF it were, it would easily fall into the release criteria as a blocker:

   "The installer must be able to complete an installation using 
    the text, graphical and VNC installation interfaces"


Orion, have you filed a bug for the package dependency issue yet, that would be a blocker bug.

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2011-02-14 20:13:40 UTC
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda for F15 alpha, which I believe
will be 15.20.1.  James - I can produce an updates.img if required, or you can grab the fix from f15-alpha-branch.

lyx has been fixed.

Comment 6 Robyn Bergeron 2011-02-18 18:55:50 UTC
Per 2011-02-18 Alpha blocker meeting:

#agreed 676942 - RejectedBlocker, RejectedNTH - a mal-formed package dep dialog in text-mode doesn't meet criteria

Comment 7 James Laska 2011-05-17 14:01:53 UTC
This issue should be resolved, however it may will need a manually broken repo to confirm.

Comment 8 Orion Poplawski 2011-05-17 15:07:51 UTC
Confirmed fixed in 15.31.  (There are plenty of broken deps to test with :().
