Description Michael Monreal 2009-03-31 08:28:29 EDT
After rawhide was unfrozen a few days ago there were a lot of updates. I let a full upgrade run and somehow managed to crash X during this.

After restarting PackageKit updater I noticed some packages now had Size "0 bytes". I was confused but concluded that "Size" means "Size to download". However, for packages that were newly downloaded during this session, the Size field still showed the "to download" Size even after download was done.

IMHO showing "0 bytes" is not a good idea. I agree that the "left to download" size is what matters. I also find it strange that packages which are already downloaded still show the icon used for "Downloading package" and wonder if the Status column really needs to show that icon anyway (it's also shown on the bottom so this seems to be a duplication)

Propoosal: unify the Size and Status columns to one "To Download" column. This column would contain:
- for not downloaded packages: the package size
- for downloaded packages: nothing
- for downloading packages: xMB of $packagesize and maybe the prograss bar

This is way simpler and does not even miss any of the information currently displayed.

Screenshot of the Problem

In the screenshot the first package was downloaded during the active session and the next packages were already cached from the last (failed) session.

Should be fixed in yesterdays snapshot. Thanks.

Right. I would still prefer to have only one (merged) column but I guess this is a matter of taste. The current version seems to work very well.
