Show number of version already installed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:10 EST
I'm used to using synaptic and I just tried yumex out. There are a few very
small details stopping me from using it like I'm used to use synaptic.
Firstly, in the "update" view, I'd like the ability to see what version is
already installed of a package, so that I know how much difference there is
between the version in the repo.
Secondly, in synaptic I can choose to only show upstream updates, which I think
is very nice. This would be nice in yumex as well!
Just my two cents.
I have add the first one to my todo list.
The second one, im not sure what it means, what is upstream updates ???

It means that it is a new version of the program. For example if rpm packager
does a new rpm of foo-1.5-1 and calls it foo-1.5-2, it's no upstream change, but
if the program comes out in version 1.6 so we get a foo-1.6-1 rpm, it's an
It's quite handy to know if the update is just a small adjustment in the
packaging process or if it's a new version of the program...
I dont think i can make the second one, Yumex is build onto of yum, yum dont
have a upstream feature, as far as i now, so i it will be hard to make.
The current version of a package will be shown in the description window.
