Re: yum annoyances



Hi

If removing packages seems a little to drastic, you can set up the
groups in Conary one more way.  You can create group-dist-deprecated,
and add all of the obsoleted packages to that group with the default
flag set to False.  Users that have an affinity to old software can
install group-dist-deprecated.  When you remove something from the
distribution (which is group-dist in our case), you would add it to
group-dist-deprecated.  If the user had group-dist-deprecated
installed, the package won't be removed from the system.
There is already a yum group for providing compatibility libs for legacy software. This solution looks is consistent with the usage of yum group in favor of virtual packages in Fedora. It is also more flexible.
