Description vinod 2009-09-21 19:11:47 UTC
Description of problem: When an unknown command is typed and a package exists is not installed, it seems like pkcon will install the packages automatically with request from the user. Currently this process hangs and consumes more than 96% CPU.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):gnome-packagekit-2.27.92-1.fc12.x86_64

How reproducible: Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. type a command for which the packages not yet installed say...( mail, cc)
2. A prompt comes like 'install package gcc to provide command 'cc' ?'
    Type 'y'
3. A prompt appears like 'Proceed with the changes ? '
    Type 'y'
Actual results:Hangs at the terminal and is consuming more than 90% of CPU and does not seem to end process.

Expected results:The dependent packages should be installed.

Additional info: Please follow attachment.
