--pm-cmd / --dnf-cmd - ? mock
What options such as '--dnf-cmd' do, can you tell?
Man page is pretty confusing - well to me it is - in that respect.
I thought that was for 'args', parameters in other words which are
available to the 'dnf' command itself but that does _not_ seem to be the
At the same time - I hit something which might be common I'd imagine:
- cannot install the best update candidate for package
- cannot install both mpfr-4.1.0-8.el8.x86_64 and mpfr-3.1.6-1.el8.x86_64
- cannot install both mpfr-3.1.6-1.el8.x86_64 and mpfr-4.1.0-8.el8.x86_64
(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest'
to use not only best candidate packages)
If '--dnf-cmd' is not for those things then how to rectify such a problem?
many thanks, L.

newer version of Koji than the Hub.
My attempts at moving Sigul to CentOS 8 Stream have just led to one bug
after another using the only build I could find, located at
I've fumbled my way through a few fixes and would be happy to contribute
when I can or, at least, report bugs. However, whenever I go to
https://pagure.io/sigul/, the apparent upstream for the project, I see
the last commit as 10 months ago, the last comment on any issue as 7
months ago, no issues closed, no PRs merged. Is it dead?
