Description James Antill 2008-08-14 15:52:51 EDT
Description of problem:
 Install "diffstat" (via. yum install diffstat)
 Enable fedora-debuginfo repo.
 search for diffstat, you should now see:

[ ] diffstat-debuginfo

 click "programming"
 scroll to diffstat, and you'll see it's "installed" (and there's only one entry)
 turn on filters => installed => only available
 scroll to diffstat, now you have one "available" entry.

 I can only assume this is actually the debuginfo one, although trying to install it fails.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-packagekit.x86_64                  0.2.3-9.fc9            installed
Comment 1 James Antill 2008-08-14 15:56:44 EDT
 Even better is that if you then turn the filter off then "diffstat" no longer has a check box ... but gpk-application thinks it's queued to install, so it'll stop any other installs but can't be turned off again (unless you know to go back to the filtered view :).
Comment 2 Richard Hughes 2008-08-15 05:10:21 EDT
I -think- this is fixed in 0.3.0 -- the INSTALLED filter was fixed to check all packages rather than just shortcut by not searching the rpm pkgs when we are searching for available packages. I'm not sure if I can backport this just yet as I'm waiting for the yum pkgSack.searchNames many packages fix (too many SQL variables) to be pushed into F9.
