Topic: bug: install-script ignoring yum-priorities

==== Provide basic information to help troubleshoot ====
- iRedMail version: 0.7.3
- Linux/BSD distribution name and version: CentOS 6 x64
- Any related log? Log is helpful for troubleshooting. > see description
====

yum-plugin-priorities is installed (see http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities for description)

priority 1 is set for base and updates(in /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo )

[base]...
priority=1

this way the distribution-own packages and updates should be installed by default (expected behavior)
well: sometimes we prefer to trust the distrib over third party (like fedora or rpm-forge)

IRM overrules this admin-choice and installs other packages

expected results

  • install packages according to priority list

Re: bug: install-script ignoring yum-priorities

maybe this patch for pkgs/get_all.sh (for default 0.7.3) might be interesting

this will set the iredmail.repo to a lower priority so all other repos (most of all the upstream updates) will be preferred first

Set the lowest priority for iRedMail yum repo, that should be fine.
Was there any error log during iRedMail installation after you modified pkgs/get_all.sh? Also, did you have any chance to test this change on CentOS 5?
