a couple of comments ....
re version yumex-0.99.7-1.0.c4
1. yumex no longer has an icon in alt-tab - previous installed release
2. Seems strange to show older versions in 'install' window - unless you
have support for reversing out later versions ...
At the moment if you select to install an older version yumex errors out
with :- /nTransaction Check Error: package yum-2.4.2-1.centos4 (which
is newer than yum-2.4.0-1.centos4) is already installed
Surely it would be better not to list them in the install window - or to
only list them if an option is set ...
3. I see that there is an option to downoad files lists & changelogs - and
it does say that this will take longer ... but with it unselected there
are still 'Files' and 'Changelog' tabs - albeit empty. Would it be
possible to lose them or grey them out when the option isnt selected -
alternatively and preferable would be to download the information just
for that package and display it when you click on the tab - either
automatically or with a confirm - subject to preference setting.
4. Select repos has a bug that it changes the display order apparently
randomly when you click on the lines and selection boxes ... I would also
like to be able to see (and or edit) the config for the repo - and possibly add repos from
Hope this is helpful
