Description Barry K. Nathan 2002-08-21 18:09:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020818

Description of problem:
--force or -f fails to ignore the package-skip list, even though that's one
thing the option is supposed to do

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
up2date 2.9.46-1 (since 2.9.50 or later doesn't seem to be on rawhide yet)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install (null) and do the initial up2date run (with registration etc.) but
don't update any of the skipped (kernel) packages
2. Open a terminal
3. Try "up2date -f kernel". It will fail because the kernel is on the skipped
packages list, even though -f is supposed to ignore that list and update it anyway.
4. Try "up2date --force kernel". Same result.

Actual Results:  Package gets skipped.

Expected Results:  -f or --force should disregard the skip list and install the
package anyway.

Additional info:

As far as I know, I'm using the correct command line option. I could be
mistaken, of course.
