I have installed Fedora 16 GNOME in December and I'm quiet happy with it, works fine and fast. The only thing that bothers me is the complete lack of any update notifications. I'm very busy and sometimes I forget to start yumex to update my packages (today I did it and there were 150 mb of delta-rpms waiting).
I thought it is a PackageKit issue (I hate PackageKit since my experience with openSUSE), that is why I got rid of all packages I could (including gnome-packagekit), without removing dependancies. The installation and configuration of yum-updatesd does not result in any positive change.
After I thoroughly searched the web for solutions I post my problem here.
Thank you in advance!
