Description H. Peter Anvin 2002-12-23 21:52:57 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020828 Description of problem: When choosing "select packages to update" during a system update, it is unclear what the checkbox actually does. It would be a lot nicer if one could choose between three alternatives: UPDATE, LEAVE, and DELETE. (Say, for example, green checkmark, blue dash, and red trashcan.) Being able to delete a package would be nice especially when space is tight. If the currently installed version is the same as the current version, the UPDATE alternative should either be unavailable or indicated as redundant, perhaps by putting the green checkmark and blue dash within parenthesis. This is important, since a missing checkmark right now doesn't explain if it's missing because the package is already up to date. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Upgrade an existing system 2. Choose customize packages Additional info:

As for package removal, I'm not sure that package removal is bound in the installer context.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-12-27 15:46:15 UTC
We will consider this request for a future release.
