Hello everyone, I have some issue when try install application…
my question, is it possible to skip some package when install some apps??..
I need to install
remi repository, but I want install it without installing
composer dependency, because I already install manual the
I install custom
composer from their website, not from
fedora repo :
I already try to exclude
composer package in
dnf exclude config and try install
--skip-broken argument, but it fails to install…
dnf, no. The whole point of the
dnf package manager and the repo system is that
dnf will fetch everything you need (dependencies) from the repos. So, the flip side is that you always get everything, and one cannot cherry-pick packages.
The maintainers take care to ensure that the best, most compatible versions of the different tools are packaged together. The dependency information is included in the rpm packages themselves, so to change it, one has to modify the spec file and then regenerate the RPMs.
I don’t know enough about PHP, but generally, the way to go is to install the packages and then modify PATH etc to give your custom installation preference over the system one. Can that not be done here?
okay, I see the point… make sense, now I know why I can’t just install some application with partial dependencies…
right now my plan is to install
phpmyadmin with manual way, because I also need custom
composer installation and don’t want mess get conflict with
phpmyadmin installation package from
thank you very much for the explanation…
