Problem description

The rpmdrake package, which provides the graphical software
installation and update tools rpmdrake, drakrpm-edit-media and
MandrivaUpdate), included with Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring contains
several bugs. These include:

When installing software with rpmdrake, if packages are selected for
installation which require other packages to be installed as well,
a message will be displayed that says To satisfy dependencies,
the following packages also need to be installed:, but no list of
dependencies will actually be shown.

When installing software with rpmdrake, searching for a package always
searches through the full set of available packages even when a search
filter - such as All updates or Mandriva choices - is selected.

When installing software with rpmdrake, when you switch between two
subsections with the same name - for instance, System/Settings/Other
and Development/Other - the list of packages is not updated; in
the example, the packages from the System/Settings/Other group
will continue to be displayed, instead of the packages from

Running rpmdrake with the --merge-all-rpmnew parameter, which uses
rpmdrake to help you merge changes in updated configuration files,
does not work.

When updating your system with MandrivaUpdate, when a package name
cannot be correctly parsed, the name of the previous package in the
list will be displayed again instead.

When installing software with rpmdrake, the application will crash
if a package with a malformed summary in the Unicode text encoding
system was selected.

Some other, more minor bugs were also fixed in this update.
