Description Milan Bouchet-Valat 2011-09-21 02:14:08 UTC
Today my updates failed while installing a new kernel because I had not enough free space. gnome-packagekit told me there was a transaction error ("what the hell is a transaction?" asks the normal user), and that I needed to run yum-complete-transaction. Why can't the program do it by itself? Most users will never find out how to run this, and give up.

(Debian/Ubuntu has the same problem when you need to run apt-get -f install, but that's not an excuse...)

This is on Fedora 15, with 0.6.17-1.fc15.

I agree, it's less than ideal. The yum developers asked PK not to run yum-complete-transactions automatically as the output ought to be reviewed as y-c-t can't be trusted not to remove every package on your filesystem.

Ah, so that's what I 'm now experiencing... :-/ So the bug is in yum-complete-transactions.

Closing this one since we'd first need to fix yum in Fedora.
