Description Féliciano Matias 2003-09-11 20:00:35 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703

Description of problem:
up2date and http://rhn.redhat.com/ indicate that there are new packages
available but rhn-applet don't (rhn-applet-gui and rhn-applet-tui).
To be honest, i never see rhn-applet turning red with severn.

Channels :
Red Hat Linux (Severn) 9.0.93 - Beta
Red Hat Linux (Severn) 9.0.93 - Beta Updates

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Launch rhn-applet. 

Additional info:

Comment 1 Aleksey Nogin 2003-10-03 16:56:09 UTC
I see this too - rhn-applet does not notice new packages in the "Red Hat Linux
(Severn) 9.0.93 - Beta Updates" channel. May be it just "forgets" to look beyond
the primary channel?

Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2003-10-03 22:07:18 UTC
Exactly -- with Fedora test 2, it looks like it notices changes in the primary
channel, but not in subchannels

rhn-applet-2.1.1-1 reported updates available in several non-RHN channels for
me, so I'd guess the problem of checking only the base channel is fixed, no?

Comment 6 petrosyan 2003-10-30 00:25:40 UTC
in a fully up2date system rhn-applet-2.1.2-1 still does not report about new

it goes red only after right-clicking on it and selecting "Check for updates"

Comment 7 Daniel Veillard 2003-10-30 09:04:51 UTC
Yes I have seen it both working and not working in this respect.
I have not been able to debug this yet,


Comment 8 Marc Williams 2003-11-19 22:38:40 UTC
The same thing just happened to me with FC1.  I knew there were a few
updates in the updates dir but about 7 hours later, my icon still was
a blue check instead of a red bang.  Right clicking on the icon and
telling it to "Check Updates" caused it to immediately turn into a red

Comment 9 Chris Stankaitis 2003-11-25 21:13:20 UTC
same issue, FC1.  up2date -l will show many new packages in

but RHN Alert Notification Tool shows no updates with the following

The applet has been unable to access the following information sources
in its last attempts: fedora-core-1 @
http://fedora.redhat.com/releases/fedora-core-1, updates-released @

Comment 10 petrosyan 2003-11-25 22:22:22 UTC
Chris Stankaitis, you have an old rhn-applet that cannot handle
redirects. Thats a different bug that has already been fixed in
rhn-applet-2.1.4-2 which can be obtained by typing:
up2date rhn-applet

Comment 11 Ken Snider 2003-11-25 22:46:48 UTC
rhn-applet isn't listed as an available update when I run up2date
(though, all other errata are, if I perform an up2date -l).

I get the same error as Chris, and am only offered rhn-applet-2.1.2-1
as a choice.

Any chance this hasn't been pushed to fedora-core-1 or the updates

Comment 12 Alexandre Oliva 2003-11-25 22:56:00 UTC
It's in the testing updates channel.

Comment 13 Daniel Veillard 2003-11-25 23:00:59 UTC
Yep, I think I will push it to the update channel soon,


Comment 14 Chris Stankaitis 2003-11-26 15:28:03 UTC
just to note for the record, updating to rhn-applet-2.1.4-3 resolved
my issue.  



Comment 15 Féliciano Matias 2004-04-03 15:27:00 UTC
Seems fixed in FC2 T2.
