Un-activated packages after install
|Reported by:||wombatstew||Owned by:||nobody|
Version: R1/beta2 (hrev54154+119) x86_64
During install, I selected all optional packages to be installed (includes binutils, gcc).
Post-install, I found that the gcc tools were missing. I tried installing it with pkgman, and it successfully downloaded all the dependencies. However, while installing, the program exits with the following error:
*** failed to commit transaction: The to be activated package "binutils-2.31.1-2-x68_64.hpkg" does already exist.
I was able to work through the issue on the discussion forum here. It appeared there were unactivated packages in /boot/system/packages/ that I needed to manually remove to fix the issue.
I was unable to reproduce this issue with a fresh install, but it was suggested that pkgman should be able to clean/handle these types of issues, and to submit a bug report here.
