Description of problem:
rhn-applet-gui does not load when I start a GNOME session. If I load it from a
command line, it fails as well. The notification area does apparently load.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run rhn-applet-gui, either from command line or in the normal session.
Actual Results: Program does not load.
When trying to start from the command line, I get the following errors:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/rhn-applet-gui", line 41, in ?
File "/usr/bin/rhn-applet-gui", line 37, in main
applet = rhn_applet.rhnApplet()
File "/usr/bin/../share/rhn/rhn_applet/rhn_applet.py", line 143, in __init__
self.session = gnome.ui.gnome_master_client()
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'gnome_master_client'
OK, maybe this is getting weird: after downgrading to gnome-panel-2.3.7-1 and
rhn-applet-2.0.10-1, I still have the bug. It must be in some other package, but
I'm not sure which one.

I can confirm this with 2.0.10-5 and Gnome updated to latest rawhide.
it's a change in the gtk python bindings. Please try 2.0.10-6
I can add it now and it doesn't crash. Will try logging in again to see what
Works for me. This also fixes the high CPU load on login it seems, but that
might be related to first time login or something. I'll investigate more later.
2.0.10-6 seems to do the trick; no problem loading it now either from the
command line or automatically on session start. Thanks for the help and the
Works here as well, thanks.
Excellent, the update has been pushed to rawhide, it will be in the
Thanks a lot for the report,
