Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 440122
Many packages listed twice, both as installed and uninstalled
Last modified: 2008-04-07 01:11:28 EDT
Description of problem: I've noticed that gnome-packagekit lists some packages
twice, as installed and at the same time uninstalled (next to each other). For
example, in the 'Admin tools' group on my system right now, audit,
authconfig-gtk and yumex appear so.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Fixed upstream in commit ed7fcb1a4a76e02717421b9f6b0dadc8d59a0882

I'm up2date on rawhide, and this bug is not fixed there yet, re-opening.
I'm seeing the same results as well. This is a *very* annoying bug for those of
us actually trying to use the new package tool
Fix is in rawhide now. No more duplicate installed/uninstalled packages.
I'm still seeing multiple listings of the same uninstalled package, if it is
provided by multiple repositories

Thanks Matthias, I can close this bug then.

IMHO, I prefer to think of this as a feature; it might actually be a good thing
to differentiate between same package from different repos, as one might have
enabled a feature which is not in the other, and the user can then make a choice.
