Resolve dependencies after ignoring package download failure

Feature state

openSUSE-11.1
Done

Description

YaST and Zypper should run the solver before resuming installation if download of a package fails and the user chooses to ignore that package. Currently YaST continues withough solving which makes the ignore button useful only if the user knows how the missing package will affect the system.

Documentation impact

Check whether this has documentation impact

Thus far not even the ignore button is documented, because we are not writing reference documentation, but procedure docs. Thus I think we can drop documentation for this feature.

bit of a corner case.

Well, yes. An idea to cover it easily to some extent: let's advice users to run 'zypper verify' (or the YaST equivalent) in such case, after the installation is finished. This will fix hard dependencies.

Yes, I would just suggest to add a message with instructions for the user.

That should be pretty simple.

done in zypper, handing over to Lada for YaST

Implemented in yast2-2.17.23.

After pressing [Ignore] user is advised to run the Software Management module (sw_single) to verify the system later.
