Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 319331
yum list truncates channel names making them mostly useless
Last modified: 2009-01-20 16:44:35 EST
Description of problem:
yum list returns output similar to the following:
zsh-html.i386 4.2.6-1 rhel-i386-server
The channel this and most packages comes from is truncated in the output. It
could be from rhel-i386-server-5, rhel-i386-server-fastrack-5,
rhel-i386-server-supplementary-5, rhel-i386-server-vt-5, or perhaps any number
of other channels that share the common truncated prefix rhel-i386-server.
This is not useful and worse is very confusing to users.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a terminal (doesn't matter if 80 columns wide or more)
2. subscribe to multiple channels sharing a common rhel5 channel prefix
3. yum list
something that actually indicates which channel a package is from
Bug 228423 is almost duplicate of this.
Add a BZ that's already fixed, just an accounting thing.
