Summary: smart: kernel-source still marked as multi-version in
distro.py
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Alpha 5
Platform: All
OS/Version: All
Status: NEW
Severity: Minor
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Other
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: andreas.hanke@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx
CC: guru@xxxxxxxxxxx


/usr/lib/smart/distro.py is setting a multi-version flag on kernel-source:

pkgconf.setFlag("multi-version", "kernel-source")

Can you reconsider this? Reasons:

- It is unexpected. There is an old rule of thumb in the SUSE community: "rpm
-qa | grep kernel" should show the same versions for all matches.

- It causes interoperability problems for users who want to work with apt and
smart in parallel, because apt errors out if multiple versions of a package are
installed.

- Now that smart respects file conflicts by default, it doesn't even have to
work: See bug 210301. Changes in /etc/init.d/running-kernel would effectively
prevent a kernel update.

- There is no way to get rid of it, because /usr/lib/smart/distro.py is not a
config file. Users can easily create their own multi-version flags, however.
