Subject: Re: smart-gui 'Content' tab empty in Fedora 10

> Hi: I've just installed Fedora 10 and have the x86_64 release version of smart and smart-gui in the KDE desktop. I haven't found a config option to show the useful 'rpm -ql' info that I see in the Centos 5.2 version: the panel is always empty. The other tabs work as usual. Have I missed something?
It's the newer RPM version, an old deprecated tag is now gone.
See https://bugs.launchpad.net/smart/+bug/263762 for patch...
It didn't at first occur to me that I could simply edit in the 6-line patch to the .py file and expect it to work: but it works-for-me :-)
File is /usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/smart/backends/rpm/header.py
smart-1.1-58.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

smart-1.1-58.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
I just installed 1.1-58.fc10@x86-64. The 'Content' tab is still empty.
After making Comment #1 above I found that although the pane was no longer empty after editing in the suggested patch to 1.1-56, its content was _not_ always identical with that given by 'rpm -ql'. I reported this to Anders, but not elsewhere.
smart-1.1-58.0.1.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.

This was a bad build, please try 1.1-58.0.1.fc10. Thanks!
Downloaded and installed smart, smart-update, smart-gui 58.0.1 from the koji url.
The patch (if it's this one)
still isn't here
and the pane is still empty :-(
Happy New Year!
OK, I thought this patch had made it into
but I was wrong. So 1.1-58 will not fix it. I'll make another build, but I do want to get 1.1-58 out the door asap to fix all other issues.
OK, it's not a major issue, although it would be nice to have it back - and perhaps the 'Changelog' tab that Anders mentioned, too. I didn't try that.
FYI, when I inserted the 'revision/936' patch as before, smart produced an error message and exited.
