Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 433716
pirut listviews display multiple versions of the same package
Last modified: 2008-05-28 15:35:52 EDT
Description of problem:
pirut displays multiple, sometimes outdated, versions of the same package. This
behaviour should be optional. This makes it confusing when choosing packages
from long list views and it can lead to unresolved-dependency issues if
interdepenent packages across different versions are selected for install. It
also necessitates a software update immediately after install just to be sure.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start pirut.
2. Go to list view.
Multiple versions of packages.
Only the latest version displayed.
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.
