PackageKit in Foresight

PackageKit is still young, not quite complete, and the API is still in the works. However…. It has amazing potential and I am sure it will really rock. As of now, the conary backend is about 80% complete and needs testing. I would love to have some folks try it out and report bugs. If the bug seems to be related to conary, please specify the backend-conary component in bugzilla.

Current operations that are supported include:

  • refresh-cache
  • seach-name
  • search-details
  • get-updates
  • update-system
  • install
  • remove
  • get-depends
  • get-description

To get it:

sudo conary update PackageKit gnome-packagekit
