Description Denis Silakov 2013-07-17 11:38:34 MSD
Currently we have quite a few situations when several packages exists that satisfy some package dependency. By default, urpmi and rpmdrake in such ask user which package to install. However, most users (especially non-developers) are not familiar with different packages and just make random choices.

To avoid such questions, rpmdrake has "Select dependencies without asking" option. This option is disabled by default. We believe that it is time to turn it on in the default configuration. During the last months, we have made some improvements in automated package selection, so in many cases such auto selection works better than random choices.

Turn on "Select dependencies without asking" option in rpmdrake by default.

Build lists:

After updating to these versions, the option in question should become enabled.

Hmmm... I Can't reproduce "select dependences" case for current urpmi
without urpmi update:
1) Delete all java
2) urpmi icedtea-web  -  java-1.6.0-openjdk automatically added
   GUI select libreoffice-java - java-1.7.0-openjdk automatically added...
Comment 3 Denis Silakov 2013-07-19 13:57:31 MSD
You mean that urpmi and rpmdrake makes different choices with '--auto'?

This is expected, since we've slightly changed algoright of 'urpmi --auto', but this change is not ported to rpmdrake yet. I will do this next week, and I think this is a separate issue.

How to check this update?
Comment 5 Denis Silakov 2013-07-21 23:31:26 MSD
Disable "Select dependencies without asking" option in rpmdrake (if you have manually enabled it). Install new rpmdrake - this oiption should be enabled now.

If you have already enabled this option before updating, then nothing should change.
