Description Gilboa Davara 2007-11-16 23:19:47 UTC
Description of problem:
Fire up yumex.
Select "all".
- Type "stdc" in the search window:
  Returns a number of stdc++ and compat-stdc++ packages.
- Type "stdc+" in the search window:
  Returns nothing.
- Type "stdc++" in the search window:
  Returns only two stdc++ packages. (Seems to zap anything that doesn't end with

Expected results:
Assuming that yumex' search functions doesn't support regex - stdc, stdc+ and
stdc++ should all return the same number of results. (All the packages that have
stdc/+/++ in their name)

- Gilboa

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 3 Jon Stanley 2008-11-26 17:36:56 UTC
As this bug is in MODIFIED, Fedora believes that a fix has been committed that resolves the problem listed in this bug report.

If this is not the case, please re-open this report, noting the version of the package that you reproduced the bug against.

Thanks for the report!
