Description Konstantin Vlasov 2013-03-11 13:41:00 MSK
When I run urpmi for installing or updating some packages the preliminary information is displayed with the list of the packages to be installed. The problem is, this list is too narrow and some names and versions are simply cut off. For example, it may look like follows:

To satisfy dependencies, the following packages are going to be installed:
 Package                        Version      Release       Dist  DEpoch Arch
(medium "kernels_38x")
 kernel-nrjQL-desktop-3.8.1-69> 1            1             rosa  2012.1 x86_64
 kernel-nrjQL-desktop-devel-3.> 1            1             rosa  2012.1 x86_64
 kernel-nrjQL-desktop-devel-la> 3.8.1        69            rosa  2012.1 x86_64
 kernel-nrjQL-desktop-latest    3.8.1        69            rosa  2012.1 x86_64

But I'm doing all this in a maximized Konsole window, and nearly half the screen to the right of the quoted text remains empty. urpmi could use this space to display more information, but it doesn't.

Feel free to try these builds:



not sending to qa yet, I guess they are busy with more important updates.

After installing this update (x86_64), mdkapplet starts crashing with the following message:

The "mdkapplet" program has crashed with the following error:

One more attempt.

Can you try these packages:



They seem to work fine for me, both 32 and 64bit.
Comment 5 Denis Silakov 2014-02-11 14:53:50 MSK
This fix was merged together with other updates in last urpmi updates.
Comment 6 Konstantin Vlasov 2014-02-11 17:17:47 MSK
Confirm the fix.
