yum list format truncates version numbers
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:54:25 EST
Description of problem:
The output from "yum list" truncates version numbers and there
does not appear to be any way (short of perhaps writing a yum
plugin) to change the output format.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "yum list 'kmod*'"
2. notice that version numbers in output are truncated
Version numbers are truncated and heres an example:
kmod-madwifi.i686 0.0.0.20060317-188.8.131.52 livna
Notice how its impossible to tell *which* kernel version this particular
kmod package corresponds to since the critical parts of the version
information have been cut off. Bad, bad!
Output formatting should preserve the full version information.
Acceptable solutions include increasing the width of the output.

a simple patch to keep from truncating version information in simpleList
Hi folks, any news here?
The problem with this is that it then "overflows" a standard terminal :/
Breaking the terminal output isn't really an option.. and there's no good wya to
find out the width we can go to without using something like curses (... which
we really don't want to do)
