Description Chris Murphy 2020-04-10 21:55:48 UTC
Description of problem:

Applies only to Fedora Workstation

earlyoom is not being pulled in when upgrading F30/F31 to F32, but should be. It is in clean installs but not upgrades (either dnf system-upgrade or Software). There's been some difficulty figuring out how to get it pulled in on upgrades. Current idea is a workaround by adding a weak dependency: supplements fedora-release-workstation

This is an approved feature for F32 including upgraded systems.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade f30/f31 to f32

Actual results:

No earlyoom package present

Expected results:

earlyoom package should be installed and running

Additional info:

If FE is not approved then upgraded systems will not have earlyoom, and will differ in behavior from clean f32 systems when in low memory situations.

Comment 1 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2020-04-10 21:58:20 UTC
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 32-final by Fedora user chrismurphy using the blocker tracking app because:

 Having parity between clean and upgraded systems for this approved feature is desired.

FEDORA-2020-c7428d5021 fixes the issue. (Update is somehow stuck in pending, not testing yet it seems, I've tested it by putting it in my repo).

Tested F31->F32 dnf system-upgrade and earlyoom is being pulled in, and after upgrade it's installed and running. Yay!
