Description Rakesh Pandit 2009-09-02 03:24:02 EDT
Description of problem: 1. Request to remove the Help linking to yelp with no documentation. 2. The Software Update hangs for ever in rawhide when I click it for checking updates. At bottom it shows "Downloading: data" with no progress bar .. it seems confusing. Screenshot: http://rakesh.fedorapeople.org/misc/Screenshot-1.png Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click on notification area check updates 2. Click on help 3. Actual results: As mentioned in description. Expected results: Show current updates and help button point to proper documentation place if available or does not get enabled (or whatever is sane). Additional info: [rakesh@rocky Desktop]$ rpm -qa PackageKit PackageKit-0.5.2-0.2.20090824git.fc12.x86_64
Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2009-09-02 04:17:56 EDT
Hmm. Does "pkcon get-updates" work in a terminal or does that fail too?
Comment 2 Rakesh Pandit 2009-09-02 04:22:29 EDT
Fails [rakesh@rocky ~]$ pkcon get-updates Command failed: cannot start daemon: cannot GetTid: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 0 [rakesh@rocky ~]$
Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2009-09-02 08:08:43 EDT
I've fixed the help buttons too -- I looks like the new scrollkeeper is more picky about series id values: commit 13fc2df4e5e3a21ff2fbe1ddc672a1f6aa7a9595 Author: Richard Hughes <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Wed Sep 2 09:52:35 2009 +0100 Fix the help buttons by ensuring the relation seriesid is unique

(In reply to comment #2) > [rakesh@rocky ~]$ pkcon get-updates > Command failed: cannot start daemon: cannot GetTid: Launch helper exited with > unknown return code 0 > [rakesh@rocky ~]$ Can you try removing PackageKit and re-installing it please. It looks like the daemon is not started for some reason.
Comment 5 Rakesh Pandit 2009-09-02 08:23:43 EDT
After removing and reinstalling: [rakesh@rocky Desktop]$ pkcon get-updates Command failed: cannot start daemon: cannot GetTid: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 0 [rakesh@rocky Desktop]$ [rakesh@rocky Desktop]$ packagekitd Error trying to start: Startup failed due to security policies on this machine. This can happen for two reasons: * The correct user is not launching the executable (usually root) * The org.freedesktop.PackageKit.conf file is not installed in the system directory: '/etc/dbus-1/system.d' [rakesh@rocky Desktop]$ [root@rocky ~]# packagekitd Error trying to start: Startup failed due to security policies on this machine. This can happen for two reasons: * The correct user is not launching the executable (usually root) * The org.freedesktop.PackageKit.conf file is not installed in the system directory: '/etc/dbus-1/system.d'
Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2009-09-02 10:01:37 EDT
selinux in enforcing mode ?
Comment 7 Rakesh Pandit 2009-09-02 13:55:11 EDT
selinux was disabled since the recent restorecond bug. Will get it up and try reproducing.
Comment 8 Rakesh Pandit 2009-09-03 00:49:53 EDT
One selinux is up .. my NetworkManager violates Selinux policy, so wouldn't be able to test it, unless I use network service. In case it is worth to test for selinux on, ping me. Thanks,

Use: sudo packagekitd --verbose Thanks.

Noting a comment from Richard on fedora-devel-list so we have it for reference in the blocker bug review tomorrow: "This has been reported by one person (no dupes), and I'm still waiting for more information. I suspect it's actually a hardware problem or file-system corruption on the reporters computer. Basically, I don't think this should be a blocker." -- Fedora Bugzappers volunteer triage team https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers
Comment 11 Rakesh Pandit 2009-10-23 00:25:55 EDT
The test box on which I was able to reproduce is not available any more due to some reasons :( and I don't have any other box running rawhide. I tried reproducing on F12 beta and was not able to reproduce. The button request is already fixed via commit 13fc2df4e5e3a21ff2fbe1ddc672a1f6aa7a9595 . You may close it with INSUFFICIENT_DATA or NOTABUG.
