Description Carl George 🤠 2020-04-23 05:27:37 UTC
Description of problem: CentOS Stream users are presented with a notification  that they should never see. System Not Registered Please register your system to receive software updates. This issue is not present on CentOS Linux, so I start investigating to see which exact package update introduced the behavior. I determined that it only happens once gnome-settings-daemon is update to 3.32.0-9.el8. Reviewing the changelog, I discovered this. * Mon Nov 18 2019 Kalev Lember <email@example.com> - 3.32.0-7 - Add a new plugin to provide system subscription information - Resolves: #1720249 Reviewing the spec file, I think we can correct this by removing patches 10002, 10003, and 10004 . We'll also want to make sure to add gnome-settings-daemon to our list of packages that need debranding. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-settings-daemon-3.32.0-9.el8 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. install centos-release-stream 2. update gnome-settings-daemon 3. log out and log back in Actual results: registration notification Expected results: no registration notification Additional info: : https://i.imgur.com/AH1YD6t.png : https://git.centos.org/rpms/gnome-settings-daemon/blob/c8s/f/SPECS/gnome-settings-daemon.spec#_88

Created attachment 1700488 [details] patch to disable subman plugin on CentOS In CentOS Stream we decided to resolve this by adding a conditional to not apply the subman patches when building for CentOS. https://git.centos.org/rpms/gnome-settings-daemon/c/f069201bce11003ff49085debb641a0ebd759f12?branch=c8s Per email conversation with the Richard, I've attached a patch to make the same change to the RHEL package.

Hey all, I tried to verify the fix, I've done: 1.Fresh install of the latest stable version: $ cat /etc/redhat-release CentOS Linux release 8.2.2004 (Core) 2.Updated the package which us supposed to fix the problem: gnome-settings-daemon-3.32.0-10.el8.x86_64 3.Rebooted, logged out multiple times Result: Notification still shows up Maybe is there some thing I missed ? If no I am afraid the fix is not working.
Comment 8 Carl George 🤠 2020-08-18 14:59:44 UTC
I only built gnome-settings-daemon-3.32.0-10.el8 for CentOS yesterday, and it hasn't been published yet. If you are injecting the RHEL package into a CentOS Stream installation, I expect that you'll still see the notification, as the conditional is build time, not run time. I installed the CentOS build of gnome-settings-daemon-3.32.0-10.el8 in a CentOS Stream virtual machine, and I don't see the notification. This is working as expected.
