Goal

class libdnf5.base.Goal(*args)

Centralized point to perform operations with RPMs, Comps groups, and Modules

add_downgrade(*args)

High level API for an artifact downgrade. See add_install() for details. :type spec: string :param spec: A string with upgrade spec :type settings: GoalJobSettings, optional :param settings: A structure to override default goal settings.

add_group_install(*args)

Add group install request to the goal. The spec will be resolved to groups in the resolve() call. Also packages of the types specified in setting.group_package_types be installed.

Parameters:
  • spec (string) – A string describing the Goal group install request.

  • reason (int) – Reason why the group is installed (USER/DEPENDENCY)

  • settings (GoalJobSettings, optional) – A structure to override default goal settings.

add_group_remove(*args)

Add group remove request to the goal. The spec will be resolved to groups in the resolve() call. Also packages not belonging to another group and not explicitly user-installed will get removed.

Parameters:
  • spec (string) – A string describing the Goal group remove request.

  • reason (int) – Reason why the group is removed.

  • settings (GoalJobSettings, optional) – A structure to override default goal settings.

add_group_upgrade(*args)

Add group upgrade request to the goal. Upgrades the packages from the group and upgrades the group itself. The latter comprises of installing packages that were added to the group by the distribution and removing packages that got removed from the group as far as they were not installed explicitly by the user and are not required by any other installed package.

Parameters:
  • spec (string) – A string with group specification

  • settings (GoalJobSettings, optional) – A structure to override default goal settings.

add_install(*args)

High level API for an artifact installation. A spec can be either a package specification matched against NEVRA, provides, and file provides, or it can be a path to local rpm file, or URL of rpm to be installed. By using `` prefix you can also specify a group, environmental group, or a module to be installed. :type spec: string :param spec: A string with installation spec :type settings: GoalJobSettings, optional :param settings: A structure to override default goal settings.

add_module_reset(spec, settings)

Add module reset request to the goal. :type spec: string :param spec: A string with module spec to reset. :type settings: GoalJobSettings :param settings: A structure to override default goal settings.

add_provide_install(*args)

Request to install providers of the spec. Useful to install package using rich dependencies. The spec (e.g. “(depA and depB)”) is not parsed but directly passed to the solver to install package(s) which provide the spec. Solver then creates a job like: “job install provides depA and depB”.
