It not possible to search for a specific rpm/program
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Sometimes it is nice to be able to search for a specific rpm/program
in the list of programs/rpms which are part of the distrobution. This
feature is e.g. part of SuSE's YaST program, but is not possible to do
with the program (add/remove packages) in Fedora Core.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Say you need to install a2ps
2. Open the program Add/Remove packages
3. You look for a search feature where you can write the
package/program name you look for, but realize it is not there.
4. You have to look through all the categories to find you package (or
The is no "search for package/program" in the "Add/Remove packages"
graphical program which is part of Fedora Core.
That the was a search feature where I could search among all the
packages which are part of the distrobution (like the one in SuSE's YaST)
This feature is essential, for a good rpmtool.
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
This report is filed against a product which is no longer supported. It is very
likely that the problem is resolved in the current version of Fedora Core or
scheduled to be resolved with the new system-config-packages scheduled to land
in Fedora Core 5.
