[RFE][4.x] Add an option to filter out i686 or x86_64 packages
Last modified: 2015-04-21 01:03:14 EDT
For users who don't use multilib and have only installed packages for their architecture (i696 or x86_64) it's annoying to have allways all architectures listed in the results.
So it would be usefull to have an option to filter out i686 or x86_64 packages from the results so they only contain noarch and i686 or x86_64 packages if that option is active.
For being backward compatible that option should be disabled by default
Sound like it could be a useful addition
there are two ways to go:
1. make a show the best match arch only (noarch & x86_64) on x86_64
2. make a arch filter to select the archs you what to show
1. is for the case where you want to search for stuff to install and dont care about the i686 packages.
2. is for the case where you want to find installed i686 packages to get rid of them.
I have implemented a initial arch filter in yumex-nextgen
Check for details how to test here:
Just click on the header of the arch column to select the arch to show.
Yeah, looks good!
