Description of problem:
After upgrading packages via pup, I encountered conditions where a text output logging facility was desired. I think the logging feature for pup transactiions needs added to the program.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch pup, allow update transaction to proceed.
2. discover that there is no logging facility for pup output.
3. save a snapshot since no text logs available
Actual Results: downloaded packages before dep resolution.
encounter dep resolution problem.
click on errors encountered control.
displays errors in dialog box where text could not be retrieved.
Expected Results: Debatable whether downloading packages before deps is pro or con. It was a pro for me.
This was an expected outcome. Deps were not met in rawhide.
Displaying error where they could be copied to an editor or saved to a file. this would be handy as a save to file feature. A normal log would be acceptable.
This feature is desirable.
Fixed in CVS
Moving component to pirut. Sorry for the spam.
