Description Rahul Sundaram 2008-04-01 02:44:56 UTC
Description of problem:

Show overall status such as the total number of packages available in the repo,
packages installed, packages available as updates etc

Additional info:

Synaptic does this at it's toolbar and IIRC provides a summary option too.

Can we get this information from yum? Do you think such information is useful to
the user?

Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2008-04-01 11:10:50 UTC
# yum list lists every package in all the enabled repositories
# yum list installed lists installed ones
# yum list available lists non installed ones
# yum list extras shows packages installed that are not part of the enabled

# package-cleanup (yum-utils) has a number of options to show issues like
duplicate packages in the repositories

I find a good summary useful. Might ask on list whether others find this a
useful feature too.

I don't think we need to show this data, sorry.
