Description Vidar Langseid 2001-02-13 11:09:53 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16 i686)

When using up2date, both in console and the GUI, the user should also be
informed about which version is currently installed on the system.

At present, up2date only shows the version numbers for the new packages.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date -l

Actual Results:  Name                                    Version       
Rel  Reason
kernel                                  2.2.17         14   Pkg

Expected Results:  Name             Installed version      Version       
Rel  Reason
kernel                   2.2.16-22      2.2.17         14   Pkg

tmay or may not make it.  We are 80 cols limited...

Comment 4 Vidar Langseid 2001-02-21 09:12:16 UTC
Is the 80 cols limit absolute ?
If you don't want to brake the 80 cols limit by default, could it be done if the
user spesifies a extra parameter

Something like

# up2date -l --verbose

Comment 7 Adrian Likins 2002-05-16 23:16:40 UTC
any suggests on how to cram all that info in there? seems like
I need:

[] name-version-release.arch name-version-release.arch size

but name-version-release.arch can be pretty large... I could
drop the name off the old version, but in cases of obsoletes
that might not make sense...

If I ignore the obsoletes I could do:

[] name version-release.arch version-release-arch size

and maybe in the case of obsoletes, something lise

[] name version-release.arch (obsoletes)name size

since this is the main interactive bit of up2date, I'd
rather not make the ui more confusing.
