View Full Version : Bug?: F10 has no new update notification

4th December 2008, 11:06 AM
I just notice that by chance there are new updates in repositories, but no notification from the system tray.

Try to reproduce this:
1) goto System-Administration-Software Sources, tick off 'rawhide', in this case you will have hundreds of updates available.

2) In terminal run 'sudo yum clean all'. All the old cache will be removed, and system should sync with new repositories.

3) Restart or log out/log in, after 1 or 2 minutes, packagekit has finished the check, but no new updates notification.
Note: in my test, the first time you did these 3 steps, 'preupgrade' will be automatically installed, this installation will trigger 'yumBackend.py', which will bring updates notification. But you log out then log in again, then no notification again.

Is this a bug? Before I report it, I want to know what happens to others.

it's not a bug .....

PackageKit only checks once per the update interval, by default once every day.
It does not check on every desktop login.

You can change this behaviour by changing
/apps/gnome-packagekit/force_get_updates_login to TRUE in gconf-editor. The
description of this key is: "Get the update list when the session starts, even
if not scheduled to. This ensures the user has up to date and valid data in the
tray at startup."

thanks bugzilla guys prompt reply.
