Description Zing 2009-06-18 11:19:43 EDT
Description of problem:
I still see color when I use the option "--color=never" or set color=never in yum.conf

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ yum --color=never list 'e2fs*'
Actual results:
see colors

Expected results:
no colors

Additional info:
IMHO, no color should be the default.
Comment 1 James Antill 2009-06-18 11:43:38 EDT
 Here's the fix:


...you can change the default to no colour by setting "color=never" in your yum.conf.
Comment 2 Zing 2009-06-18 14:27:18 EDT
confirm patch worked. thanks.

i know i can set it in yum.conf and that's what i'll be doing.  I just think the default for color when unspecified should be "never"... but it's definitely your prerogative.  i know as a grumpy old cli user i'm in the minority.
Comment 3 seth vidal 2009-06-18 14:44:38 EDT
I know james will disagree but I'm inclined toward never being the default, too.
