Title: Resolve dependencies after ignoring package download failure

- openSUSE-11.1: Evaluation
+ openSUSE-11.1: Candidate
Priority
Requester: Desirable
Projectmanager: Desirable

Requested by: jkupec@xxxxxxxxxx
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

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.

Discussion:

bit of a corner case.

#2: jkupec@xxxxxxxxxx (2008-06-16 11:44:24)
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.

#3: visnov@xxxxxxxxxx (2008-06-24 15:32:30) (reply to #2)
Yes, I would just suggest to add a message with instructions for the
user.

+ That should be pretty simple.
