Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1291016
not showing full repo package list
Last modified: 2016-07-19 14:35:55 EDT
Description of problem:
synaptic is only showing the installed packages, not the full list available from the repo.
Furthermore, there is a sub bug:
synaptic is not recognizing its own repomd settings and outright rejects the deb and deb-src options for a repo, even when none are set to add. Rawhide is somehow selected when checking. repomd and repomd-src should be options where the deb option is.
Technically we could support both, but it may be easier to support repomd only and use alien or similar(as debian systems do with rpm files..but the other way around) in a script or method.
Synaptic is showing better than before.It is a wonderful package manager and could replace yumex in full if this is worked out.Synaptic supports version locking natively.
Also, added repos generally dont seem to have repomd files, maybe this is just an oversight. OLEA seems to have one but RPMFusion does not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.check the repo submenu
3.hit the refresh button(not much happens)
this should work as is normal for debian based systems(obviously with rpms instead), maybe even allow for deb packages and deb repos.
used synaptic from debian/ubuntu
OLEA: get the right key, if you setup as-is, the repo for kompozer has a yanked gpg key. correct id is: 89F4CE7B. Dont forget to sign it.(which leads to another bug)
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
