Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439736
Running pk-application leads to downloading the (very large) filelists.sqlite and other.sqlite
Last modified: 2009-06-03 15:03:40 EDT
We've made very large efforts to eradicate the need for downloading filelists in
the common case because the size of the metadata is quite large (it basically
triples what has to be downloaded) and for people who aren't on very fast
broadband connections, the lag to download this file is pretty painful (or the
cost if you're on a metered line).
Upon starting pk-application, those, these files are downloaded.
When starting, or when you click the "File List" tab?
All I have to do is click one of the groups in the left pane and my
/var/cache/yum/rawhide goes from empty to having all of the metadata files present.
Robin, why are we downloading the packagelists when doing a SearchGroup?
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Assignee, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
Jeremy, is the behaviour better with F11?
Yep, looks okay.
