Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 109599
RFE --verbose should have meaningful output in all modes
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:59:18 EDT
Right now, -v doesn't do anything in several major modes, requiring
the user to either wonder what's going on or read the debug output
So, -v should work with --erase, --verify, and --rebuilddb.
Bonus points of --hash works with them as well.
Inventing --verbose output to fill a void doesn't make
much sense. More specific suggestions (or patches) for
output will be considered, NEEDINFO so I don't have to stare at the bug.
Basically, I'd like to be able to do rpm -evh, rpm -Vavh, or rpm
--rebuilddb -vh and get a nice progress bar.
-v and -vv are usable in most modes, -h would require callbacks everywhere and
is not currently planned.
