It would be nice if /tmp/upgrade.log would list all the packages it
didnt upgrade as a seperate item. This would help the system
administratior see if he needs to remove items, clean out broken RPMS,
contact RH about it, or see if he needs to find an alternative vendor
for that package. The general format of the item would be:
Packages NOT upgraded:
... yadda ...
It would be nice to have this also as a screen during a manual upgrade..
but that would be an 8.0 feature at least. This should be around a 20
line addition to anaconda (its about 4 lines of awk.. my python
a) has been done for quite some time. b) is "individual package selection". It
may be possible to improve this in upgrage mode by filtering the new packages
from the ones already slected to be upgraded...
I think you are misinterpreting what I am asking for.
What you have in the logs currently is:
The following packages were available in this version but NOT upgraded:
What this tells me is that the following RPMS were on the cdrom but were not
upgraded.. Or at least that is what I am hoping it is saying because I dont have
any of these RPMS installed on the system.
WHat I am looking for a simple report that could be mailed to root or something like
Thankyou for upgrading to 7.3.
The following packages on your system were upgraded:
The following packages were NOT upgraded. They are not included with this
version of Red Hat Linux 7.3. They may have been installed as seperate packages,
or are no longer being maintained by Red Hat.
A detailed report would actually say which ones were Red Hat packages and what
aaah, I understand.
Pushing off for next release.
Deferring to future release.
