Add skip_broken=1 to yum.conf by default
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:21:53 EST
Description of problem:
Yum has the ability to exclude broken packages from updates since several version but to use this feature you've to add the --skip-broken parameter everytime you run "yum update" or add "skip_broken=1" to your yum.conf.
It would be a good idea to add the "skip_broken=1" line by default to the yum.conf to make yum exclude broken packages from updates by default and without user interaction.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum aborts updates if one or more packages have dependency problems
yum should exclude packages with dependency problems and contiune update process and update all packages without dependency problems
Maybe when we get a new depsolver, we can look at this again. But atm. skip-broken doesn't work well enough to enable it for everyone.
There's also the fact that it's _much_ better if you are using repos. that aren't broken, instead of relying on skip-broken.
