Yum Extender lacks a major feature which is e.g. available in rpmdrake from Mandriva, see the screenshot: you cannot restrict a query to packages already installed or not yet installed. You can only query amongst all available packages, which in several cases is not what I want.
For instance, if you want to know which kernel packages are installed, rpmdrake let you restrict the query to installed packages, then you type "kernel" in the search field, and you only get installed kernels. With Yum Extender, you have to go through the whole list, which is slower and much more painful.
transfer to yumex :)
Sound like a sane request :)
Would it be ok, to add some options to the search option to limit the search results to 'installed','available'

I would rather see the radio buttons being permanently visible, so that you can easily select one of the first 4 radio buttons. This would also remove some confusion, because when you select one of the radio buttons, it's getting ignored once you search for a specific package.
So basically, the UI is already here. You would just have to reuse it. :)
