This was previously working, but now if I click the synaptic icon, the status only shows items
All and Not Installed.
There were options of local installed, Installed and others.
I am using the Heanet mirror.
From a terminal:
rpm -qa (still shows a list of installed packages).
With Synaptic Gui, File , History also shows (by date) list of installed packages,
but not under status.
I have restarted, tried a different mirror but still no list of installed software.
Any ideas how to get the list back?
