yum.log does not show package version when erasing
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:54:54 EST
Description of problem:
/var/log/yum.log does not show the package version when erasing,
while it does show the package version when installing or updating.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum erase foo
2. tail /var/log/yum.log
3. The version of foo just erased is not in yum.log.
Actual results from /var/log/yum.log:
May 17 07:39:11 Erased: vnc-server
May 17 07:39:13 Erased: vnc
Package version should be shown as in:
May 19 14:40:33 Updated: ntp.i386 4.2.0.a.20050816-11.FC5
May 19 14:40:37 Installed: kmod-nvidia.i686 1.0.8756-220.127.116.11_1.2111_FC5
Unfortunately, there's no data passed back from rpm as to what the version of
the removed package was and thus there's not anything we can really do :(
