[RFE] ability to lookup what RPMs that up2date cannot update
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:11 EST
Description of Problem:
up2date cannot update certain RPMs... such as RPMs from a third party. I would
like to be able to view a list of what RPMs I have installed that up2date cannot
That way I know to keep an eye out so that I can more easily manually update
added in head cvs as "--show-orphans" cli option.
should show up in versions 2.0.44 or higher.
At the moment, no gui equilvent of this.
For the time being, I'm going to consider the commandline option
good enough to mark this as "modified".
If you like, you can open a new bug for the gui component.
[root@server cgi-bin]# up2date --version
Red Hat Update Agent v2.8.39

[root@server cgi-bin]# up2date --show-orphans
Unknown option --show-orphans
Why doesn't it show up as an option? Did I do somthing wrong?
er, ooops... sorry. I meant 3.0.44 or higher. I just added
it to the code base yesterday ;->
It should be available in the future.
Works in Red Hat 9, and will be errata'd in the future, closing.
