Description Andrew Gilmore 2007-10-30 17:16:51 EDT
Description of problem:
Package lists appear to be much longer than they should because packages are
often listed twice. 

I'll attach a screenshot of an example.
(see the d3lphin entries)

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

I've seen this many times.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-30 17:36:21 EDT
What repos do you have configured?  Do you have the same repo set up multiple ways?
Comment 3 Andrew Gilmore 2007-11-04 22:43:45 EST
I've tested this with and without several other repositories, with and without
the presto enabled repository enabled.

No difference, shows up with current fedora and updates enabled, with just
"Development" enabled.

System is apparently completely up to date. yum update reports no packages to

System was installed from F8 Test 3 Live CD, and updated from there.

Second dl3phin line is garbled when scrolled past and back to, but when a
screenshot is taken, the line is redrawn with the d3lphin package listing.

Entry for perltidy is duplicated

But, if I move the mouse around, I can make it change to other packages, such
as perltidy.
Comment 6 Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2008-01-03 06:22:03 EST
This is a pirut graphics rendering glitch due to some kind of race with 
alphabetic resorting on the fly. Scrolling up and down usually fixes it.

Pup, on the other hand, sometimes lists old packages along with updated ones, 
but that is a different story.

Still happening in the rawhide of 2008-01-14
It seems to be in about the same place near the front end of the list in _some_
of the categories.  Almost always affected is bochs (for example)

Since this is also used in the installer, I'd suggest that this needs some
prompt attention.
Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2008-05-13 23:48:01 EDT
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 9 petrosyan 2008-05-15 23:35:32 EDT
pirut has been removed from Fedora 9.
Comment 10 Jeremy Katz 2008-05-28 15:15:24 EDT
This isn't going to get changed at this point as pirut is pretty much entirely
EOL'd and only getting critical fixes for older releases.  In Fedora 9 and
later, any such concerns can be filed against PackageKit/gnome-packagekit.
