Description Martin Flack 2002-02-02 12:24:38 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.7) Gecko/20020104

Description of problem:
up2date will cache rpm's in /var/spool/up2date, and should the download fail or
the program be aborted, the next execution does not have to download the
binaries again, but it always goes to get the source every time. This is
extremely annoying when using a slow connection and trying to get something like
a new version of XFree86 which is many megabytes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@solvent root]# rpm -qi up2date
Name        : up2date                      Relocations: (not relocateable)
Version     : 2.7.11                            Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.
Release     : 7.x.2                         Build Date: Tue 20 Nov 2001 05:09:56

Summary     : Determines which system packages need to be updated via RHN.
Description :
The Red Hat Update Agent that automatically queries the Red Hat
Network servers and determines which packages need to be updated on
your machine.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure up2date to download source
2. update a number of huge packages on a slow connection
3. abort the download half-way
4. return to 2, notice that it starts all over again for source rpms

Actual Results:  Binary packages which have already been downloaded are skipped
to 100% completion right away, but source packages which have already been
downloaded are downloaded over.

Expected Results:  Both binary and source packages already downloaded should be

Additional info:
On the text display it would be nice if the line showed the source package name
like it does on the binary line.
