Description James Hunt 2005-01-13 05:31:05 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)

Description of problem:
"yum install" and "yum update" do not show which repository a match is
found in.

If, like me, you are totally paranoid and like to be kept informed
about what the computer is doing, it would be *VERY* useful to know
which repo a particular package is resolved in.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install <some_existing_but_not_installed_package>
2. observe yum output


Actual Results:  Output shows:

1) name of package to be installed
2) package version
3) package architecture (which most users don't really care about).

Expected Results:  I expect to be told, "package <x> (resolved from
repository <y>) is about to be installed. OK? [y/N]"

Additional info:

"yum list" and yum search" *DO* show the information, but I don't want
to have to run yum twice (it's slow enough as it is...)

If you fix this problem, please also apply the same logic to any
dependencies that need to be resolved as a result of installing the
initial package.

Thanks in advance,
