After disabling mdules, dnf module enable ends in a dependency hell

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • use case: I want to disable all modules and enable just one specific (with its dependant modules)
  • but enabling it fails on dependencies of (disabled) modules
  • extending the dnf module enable command by dependent modules turns into a dependency hell

Isn't there a way to tell dnf "enable this module with all its dependent modules"?
