Yast2 package manager: Select/taboo packages by feature/provides/hardware

Feature state

openSUSE-11.2
Rejected Information

Description

From bugzilla: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=506970

I have no bluetooth devices, so it would be convenient to prevent/taboo anybluetooth package to become automatically installed on the system.

I have an intel GPU, but it didn't prevent the Xorg packages for radeon andunichrome to get automatically installed (suggested packages?).

It would be convenient to have a way to select or taboo packages by feature orhardware availability. It could look like a metapackage or an option that couldbe selected, like:

"Bluetooth -> Never install"

"Graphics driver - Intel -> Selected"

"Graphics driver - Radeon -> Never install"

I once tried to make me such a slim system using gentoo: resulted in an ugly performance system -  a mess of loop services waiting for input not configured. While a radeon display driver residing on my harddisk does not hinder my system.

We have already the means for this that you can mark packages dependend on specific pci IDs and similar features. If a package gets installed nevertheless, please file a bug against that single package so that it gets fixed.
