Holy smoke! Batman that packagekit is lame. It's not ready for prime
The first two minutes and I have a list of things wrong. Where to start:
1. No help.
2. under the "groups" tab, the list of groups is disorganized.
something in this tab ?
I get an message box saying:
"No packages cache is available.
Yum cache was invalid and has been rebuilt."
I asked this course I want to fill a bz today, but if you see something
more then me, I'm not sure what to fill.
3. the list of packages in a group needs to be sorted.
4. just having a different color to indicate installed or not installed
is *bad* ui design. think of colorblind people.
5. How do you select multiple packages to install at the same time?
6. how do you expand the "description" text box?
number 5 is a real usability problem.
I cannot understand how people are thinking this is ready to be the
default s/w management app.
That's what I was asking myself yesterday also, when I investigated the
above problem a little bit deeper.
Good luck with your bugzilla. I'll resume putting things in bugzilla
when I start getting responses to things I have already put in.
