Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 555071
Some of packages like NetworkManager are not sorted alphabetically
Last modified: 2013-03-14 16:12:11 EDT
Description of problem:
Some of packages like NetworkManager are not sorted alphabetically in 'groups base' > "Optional packages"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. # yum repolist
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
repo id repo name
rhel-x86_64-server-5 Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5
for 64-bit x86_64) enabled: 8,362
2. # yum clean all
3. # pirut
4. Select package and Click "Optional packages".
5. EX Select "Base System" and "Base".
6. Click "Optional packages"
It's generally sorted right but see that "network-manager" is first. There is some exception like this if you search in other groups too.
all packages are sorting alphabetically
I thought we had this already, but I was thinking of bug#481179, which is about the group info. sorting.
Anyway, this bug is really a yum bug ... but I'm not sure how painful it would be to change the sorting in yum (although for RHEL we don't do i18n for yum itself, so maybe it's ok).
Fixing it in just pirut would mean putting custom sorting routines everywhere.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Engineering for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.
Red Hat does not currently plan to provide this change in a Red Hat
Enterprise Linux update release for currently deployed products.
With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in
response to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a
conservative approach when evaluating enhancements for inclusion in
maintenance updates for currently deployed products. The primary
objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware platform
support and to resolve critical defects.
