Description of problem:
I have successfully downloaded several errata packages associated
with my RHN. However, none of those are successfully installed to
the hardware. I select a downloaded package icon, and right-click to
choose "Install Packages." As asked to be root, I do so.
The "Preparing for Modifying the System" window shows up, in which
"Processing Header" and "Loading Headers of Each Package" halfly
process, and the window is gone! No downloaded packages have ever
been successfully installed, proven by failing to display the
"This package is already installed" window even though I double-
click any of the downloaded packages icons.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right-click to choose "Install Packages," asked to become root.
2.The "Preparing for modifying the system" window appears and halfly
3.The window is gone.
Actual Results: No downloaded errata packages have ever been successfully
Expected Results: All of downloaded errata packages should be installed.
An error message "The system was crashed by a fatal error" always
appears soon before the system is shutdown.
Are there any error messages in ~/.xsession-errors?
I cannot find any error messsages.
redhat-config-packages doesn't install updated packages at present.
