Description James Manning 2002-03-24 09:13:33 UTC
seems like the first line I get back is valid, but the rest I don't get why 
it's happening - I don't get why you'd need anything interactive just to list 

[root@bp6 up2date_client]# up2date --show-channels

Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2002-03-25 23:41:42 UTC
hmm, for some reason I have avoided fixing this because I
was thinking it needed substantial changes to the arg parsing.

Looks like I can just exit after showing the channels and
it does what everyone expects. Should be fixed in 2.7.63 or higher
(fix in cvs currently)
