Description Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-01-15 18:48:11 UTC
Right now, there's only the choice "Install packages to satisfy dependencies".
It would be nice to have it on a per-package basis, along with a "in that case, don't install this package" and a "ignore this dependency and proceed" choice.

katzj, any chance of this for the next release, or should we defer it?

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2002-06-05 03:34:06 UTC
It was reopened and left reopened for a reason...  I hope to get to it, but it
depends on a lot of other things.  But in reality, you should never have to see
this (we should basically do dependency generation on the fly for individual
package selection and just resolve them if we can if you happen to need them

Comment 6 Joseph Shraibman 2002-10-31 19:12:58 UTC
Perhaps other versions than 6.1 should be added to this bug so searches on 8.0
can find this?

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2003-07-28 22:32:25 UTC
