Description chris.arrowood 2001-07-07 14:51:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90)

Description of problem:
When you recieve a LONG list of failed dependencies, the list can cause 
the dialog to scroll off of the screen.  Since the "ok" button is at the 
bottom of this dialog it is also now hidden off the screen and the user 
does not know what to do next.  (Newbies may not realize they can use the 
alt key and mouse to move the dialog up until the ok button is exposed...)

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
If you really want to...  Do something silly like trying to upgrade to the 
LATEST kdeutils while you have kde1.0.   :-) 

btw my resolution is > 1024x768.

hmm, interesting. I'll see if I can make that a scrolled
dialog instead.
Comment 2 John Thacker 2006-04-22 11:20:53 EDT
up2date is no longer shipped with Fedora Core; it's functionality 
has been replaced by pup, found in the pirut package.  The only fixes 
likely to be made to up2date in RedHat Linux and earlier Fedora Core 
versions are security fixes by Fedora Legacy.  This does not seem to 
be a security bug, so I'm closing it.  It's also very old and possibly already

If the problem is appropriate to RHEL and occurs to a user there, it 
can be filed as such.
