Description Féliciano Matias 2003-09-11 16:00:35 EDT
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):
rhn-applet-2.0.10-6

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Launch rhn-applet. 

Additional info:
Comment 1 Aleksey Nogin 2003-10-03 12:56:09 EDT
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 18:07:18 EDT
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 2003-10-29 19:25:40 EST
in a fully up2date system rhn-applet-2.1.2-1 still does not report about new
packages.

it goes red only after right-clicking on it and selecting "Check for updates"
Comment 7 Daniel Veillard 2003-10-30 04:04:51 EST
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 17:38:40 EST
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
bang.
Comment 9 Chris Stankaitis 2003-11-25 16:13:20 EST
same issue, FC1.  up2date -l will show many new packages in
http://fedora.redhat.com/updates/released/fedora-core-1/headers/header.info.

but RHN Alert Notification Tool shows no updates with the following
message.

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 @
http://fedora.redhat.com/updates/released/fedora-core-1 
Comment 10 petrosyan 2003-11-25 17:22:22 EST
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 17:46:48 EST
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
channel?
Comment 12 Alexandre Oliva 2003-11-25 17:56:00 EST
It's in the testing updates channel.
Comment 13 Daniel Veillard 2003-11-25 18:00:59 EST
Yep, I think I will push it to the update channel soon,

Daniel
Comment 14 Chris Stankaitis 2003-11-26 10:28:03 EST
just to note for the record, updating to rhn-applet-2.1.4-3 resolved
my issue.  

Thanks.

Chris
