From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17-14 i586)
I have updated to 2.5.3-1
Before this version I have option to see all available packages, not only
the installed packages
This feature is very good, sometimes we need to install a package that are
not installed and is good to install the latest version.
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: The option to get all packages are removed.
If I try to use the --showall on command line, the list is displayed in the
console and program stops.
Expected Results: When using the --showall the program must have the old
behaviour and show all packages and permit the installation.
you may install any package or package(s) individually by passing them on the
command line, regardless of whether or not they are installed. The old method
was simply too resource-intensive (all headers had to be downloaded).
Now, you can:
and then pick some packages. To install them:
up2date <uninst-packagename1> <uninst-packagename2>
It will work.
The old behaviour can be an option, because with the old behaviur I can know
what is a package looking at the info.
With this new format I get only the package name.
