RFE: yumex -n versus cache
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
Description of problem:
when using yumex -n and knowing the fact that the cache hasn't yet been deleted,
in the "install" section there are no packages in the list.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yumex -n
nothing in thel ist
a list of pacakges from the cache
-n mean no automatic load of repository metadata, you use this option if you
want to start yumex, without it starting to load metadata at once. So you can
select a different profile or select some speciel repos to use and then you load
the metadata by pressing the refresh button on the repos page.
The cache option is -C or --usecache, the cache option work in the same way as
in yum, no downloading occours, everything has to be in the cache (repo
metadata, rpm headers, packages).
