Description Henri de Solages 2012-11-03 21:04:37 CET
Theme name: oxygen-gtk
Kernel version = 3.3.8-desktop-2.mga2
Distribution=Mageia release 2 (Official) for x86_64
CPU=Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.20GHz

In RPMdrake, there is a column "status" with symbols, but no explanation. For instance, I get a one-way sign on an installed package: what does this mean? (If it were on an uninstalled package, I would have guessed it means that package cannot be installed for any reason.) How can I find the explanation? I suggest a bubble explanation. The same way, "Arch." is not obvious for everybody. Another bubble title there would be welcome.
