Dependencies should be installed when RPM is clicked.

Feature state



EXAMPLE: I download Foo.rpm. I click on Foo.rpm. Foo.rpm depends on Foo_data.rpm. Foo_data.rpm is available in the repos, but is not installed. I have to manually install Foo_data.rpm, and then click on Foo.rpm. Clicking on an RPM package should call zypper to pull in dependencies and satisfy Foo.rpm. Debian already does this with gdebi.

It is just a matter of changing .rpm file association for open (from rpm -i to yast -i).

What are you using? (Dolphin, Nautilus, ...)

I have no idea. It is the default that is used when you click on a standalone rpm package. Using 11.3 KDE RC1. File association says rpm is set to use Install/Remove Software (package-manager --install %F). This calls /usr/bin/package-manager, which acording to it's contents is supposed to call yast or packagekit acording to your desktop DE. I always get a dialoug similar to Debian's gdebi, but package install always fails if dependencies are needed. What ever is calling this dialoug box isn't able to acsess yast to pull in dependencies.

This never worked in 11.2 for me. I tested in 11.3, and Yast was opened to show dependencies being installed. Maybe it was just broken for 11.2.

I can also confirm it doesn't work in 11.2. It's not because it's calling RPM instead of YAST, I could see on the root password prompt that the command is 'yast -i blah blah'.

If it works in 11.3 then possibly it was just a bug in YAST in 11.2.

This is fixed since 11.3

This always worked well in Gnome and KDE3 so probably a KDE4 bug.
