Ticket #460 (closed defect: fixed)

Opened 16 years ago

No way to specify packages with the same name but under different package mannagement systems

Reported by: dclark Owned by: desai
Priority: critical Milestone: Bcfg2 0.9.5 Release
Component: bcfg2-server Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Say I have an RPM package "openssl", and an AIX package "openssl", and an Encap package "openssl", all of which install to separate places and are used by different pieces of software. How do I specify for instance I want the encap and AIX packages but not the RPM one on a particular client? (assuming here the existence of an AIX client tool driver).

At the moment this isn't possible. See IRC log around ticket open time for some discussion.

This is critical (to me at least)... it is a blocker to my deployment.

Effects at least Pkgmgr and Deps generator plugins.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Milestone set to Bcfg2 0.9.5 Release

This appears to be fixed by using the new altsrc? feature.
