Bug #242368 makes Fedora... uh... worse than Mandriva?

Filed under
Linux

"Closed Errata", but living bug. After all, package management is the worst managed department in Linux, no matter what distro you consider. CLOSED? Really?! Then how come the duplicate bug #251842: Dependency not installed was filed on 2007-08-12?

I thought only Mandriva is able to repeatedly break RPMdrake!

Things with F7 are actually worse: when Mandriva's RPMdrake is broken, URMPI is fully functional, but the bug in Pirut is only in part its own bug, and in part a yum bug, not properly handled by Pirut and Yumex. The whole thing seems to be horribly messy with the "new" yum.

Say, 2 months since #242368 was reported, and Fedora's package management system can still experience it? Gosh. Reliable stuff...

The reliability and dependability of the package management is crucial. Not anymore in Fedora.
