Description Tomasz Chrzczonowicz 2009-07-11 07:29:34 UTC
Have you considered gnome-packagekit supporting selecting packages for installation and removal in one transaction?

Right now, as of 2.27.3, when user selects package for installation, gnome-packagekit prevents him/her from selecting packages for removal and vice-versa.

No, it's not in the PackageKit API, and doing so makes the transaction process much more complex to expose in a sane UI. I think it's best if this stays as two separate transactions.

Thanks for opening this bug, but I think it opens a can or worms I really don't want to support.
