Description of problem:
I can't seem to get a complete package list using gpk-application. It will query the system and then return NO results. I need a tool that works like system-config-packages. I need to be able to look at all the packages in a group complete with descriptions. I need to be able to do easy global searches on filename/description/package name (at the same time!).
At this point, I am finding PackageKit completely unusable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gpk-application
2. Click on a category
No results were found.
A list of all the packages in the selected group.
Can you give an example of how you want to query PackageKit? How did you used to
do it in yum/pirut?
I upgraded to the PackageKit / gnome-packagekit that is in the devel tree. It
seems to fix most of my complaints. I read that you will push out that version
when it is stable. The sooner the better on that ... :-(
I think the system-config-packages by default would search all names,
descriptions, etc. It might be worthwhile to add a search option to do all 3 as
well as each individual search type.
Right, 0.2.3 should hit F9 in a few days.
