[PATCH] download progress bars scroll down in windows less than 80 characters wide
Last modified: 2009-06-09 20:29:19 EDT
Description of problem:
When running yum in a konsole window, I get output like:
(1/1): libX11-debuginfo-1 0% | | 8.0 kB 05:00 ET
(1/1): libX11-debuginfo-1 0% | | 16 kB 04:57 ET
(1/1): libX11-debuginfo-1 0% | | 24 kB 04:42 ET
(1/1): libX11-debuginfo-1 1% | | 40 kB 04:15 ET
i.e., it scrolls down the page rather than overwritng the same line. Works fine
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I can't reproduce this.
i also can't reproduce it. I'm pretty sure it's a problem in your setting.
Could you please try with new user? Or please check the konsole
I can reproduce with a new user.
Under Settings -> Edit Current Profile -> Input, Key Bindings is set to "Default
(XFree 4)". Interestingly, all of the icons for the entries in the list are "?"s.
Also to note, I am doing "su -" before running yum. TERM is set to xterm.
wget progress bars are fine. Still looking for another program with progress
bars that does it...
Note that this is really the output of "urlgrabber". I get the same with:
Changed to component python-urlgrabber
That's because konsole was just short of the 80 char width urlgrabber expects,
this is fixed in the latest kdebase.

I don't think this should be a duplicate. This is a problem in
python-urlgrabber not supporting windows less than 80 characters wide. If the
python-urlgrabber maintainer wants to close "WONTFIX", that's fine by me - it's
not a big deal.

A patch to allow urlgrabber to take the terminal width into account
Here's a patch that should make urlgrabber take the terminal width into account
Created attachment 303174 [details]
Oops, forgot that it prints something out at the end too.
Note that this dies horribly on terminals < 58 columns wide ...

This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '9'.
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 9'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 9 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:
The fix was already pushed to stable months ago according to Bodhi.
