Description Kevin R. Page 2007-02-22 17:32:50 UTC
Description of problem:
The brave new world of pup and puplet is generally great, however, when using
pup to update I'm no longer informed of rpm warnings e.g. rpmnew/rpmsave files.

On machines I update myself, it would be useful for the pup UI to be able to
pass on these warnings.

On machines updated by less experienced users, which I keep an eye on via
logwatch - and if the pup UI is being kept intentionally simple - then it would
be useful for these warnings to be recorded in yum.log.

If so, perhaps this would be better filed against yum? I'll refile if this is
the consensus.

I notice that if I run pup from a terminal, the rpm warnings are shown there -
so I guess they may be coming from rpm/librpm and going to stderr rather than a
logging interface? So perhaps this goes right down to the rpm API?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

reassigning to pirut - though this seems more like rpm.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-12 18:24:46 UTC
Added in CVS for pirut (1.3.18 or so); going to try to push down to yum, though
