Description Martin Frodl 2016-05-31 09:28:29 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1267677 +++

Description of problem:
when using installed-rpms to check which packages are installed there is too much information in it for your average frontline engineer, I would like to propose that installed-rpms go back to the previous format, and the extra data that is now included be put in a seperate file 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. request sosreport from a customer running sos-3.2 or later
2. check installed-rpms
3. get TMI and it is not human readable

Actual results:

output similar to for each package in installed-rpms:

zlib-1.2.3-29.el6.x86_64                                    Mon Jun 29 17:57:22 2015	1435593442	Red Hat, Inc.	x86-022.build.eng.bos.redhat.com	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	RSA/8, Tue Nov 27 10:58:54 2012, Key ID 199e2f91fd431d51

Expected results:
in installed-rpms the following information:

zlib-1.2.3-29.el6.x86_64                                    Tue May  6 11:51:53 2014

and everything else somewhere else. Or a new file that contains just the package name and installation date if moving the pgp key and extra data elsewhere is not feasible

Comment 2 Pavel Moravec 2016-05-31 10:04:01 UTC
The fix committed to upstream will appear in 7.3 due to sos rebase in Red Hathttps://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1293044 .

Comment 3 Pavel Moravec 2016-11-11 08:13:37 UTC
This has been fixed in upstream sos 3.3 we rebased to by [1] in RHEL7.3. Errata [2] should resolve this bug.

Please test [2] and in case it does not address the reported problem properly, reopen this BZ.
