Description Rahul Sundaram 2004-10-13 11:04:43 EDT
Description of problem:

Yum's status or error messages could be more precise. 

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. run yum install packagename where package already exists
2. run yum install packagename for a non existant package

Actual results:

1. "Nothing to do" - Would be better to say "package already
installed" or something similar

2. argument does not exist - would be better to say "Package does not
exist in repository" or something similar
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2005-07-29 16:02:56 EDT
Should be better with newer yum
