Description Christopher Stone 2006-07-12 19:28:39 EDT
Description of problem:
"rpmlint asaasdfasdfaskdjfhasldfkjah" command should warn:
Package not found.

Prevents stuff like:
rpmlint kernrl

giving no warnings and the user not realizing he made a type-o on the package name.

rpmlint should warn the user that the installed package was not found.

This didn't make it in 0.77-1?
Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2006-09-03 04:18:25 EDT
No, this bug was reported and fixed in upstream svn about 2 weeks after 0.77-1
was released.  There will be a new release soon, stay tuned.
