Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 182492
Software removal has a misleading message
Last modified: 2013-03-13 01:43:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove a package using pirut
2. End of removal it says "Software installation completed"
Software installation completed
Software removal completed
Seems to take a long time to check for dependencies while removing packages and
intermediate time between checking for dependencies and the transaction message,
pirut seems to hang
All of the messages tend to say installation generically. I'm up for better
ways to phrase it, especially given the fact that adding and removing are
possible in the same transaction
Perhaps it should say "Software transaction completed" instead. CC'ing quaid for
better word smithing...
"Software operation completed" is the best alternative I can dig up. However,
it is not as accurate as 'transaction'.
Rahul, do you think 'transaction' translates well enough? Our usage seems a
little idiomatic to me, or rather, focused on the truth under the covers. The
user may not see it as a transaction, even though pirut is actually transacting
with a software repo.
Without anything better, 'transaction' is the clearest and most accurate, IMO.
I agree with that. Transcation is technically accurate but doesnt really
translate well at all. We need to get over the urge to communicate the
underlying technological details and just present the message in the best way
that makes sense for the general non technical end user (ie) directory vs folder
Software operation completed might be a better option though its kind of vague.
It just might be better to code in and differentiate a software removal from a
software installation and be more clear if that isnt too much trouble.
The problem with doing just a check and doing installation and removal as
separate messages is that it still doesn't solve the case where a user adds and
removes software in the same transaction.
I'll think about operation a bit and if I have to rebuild pirut, I'll change it,
but at this point, it's not worthy of changing just for this :)

Sorry, I hadn't looked in Fedora Core for this problem - I've set up mirroring
to this bug, instead.
