Description K Kane 2003-11-18 02:42:30 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5)
Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7

Description of problem:
The panel applet never shows my system in need of updates, even when
they are available.  If I click on the applet, in addition to the
standard window, I get one requesting that I register with rhn.  If I
click the "register" button, the updater launches.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click the rnh applet in the panel
2.Click the register option

Actual Results:  Asks me to register every time.  Applet never shows a
need to update.

Expected Results:  Applet should show the "red !" when packages are
available.  Registering should happen once, not each time.

I used Fedora Core 1's up2date and I could skip right past the
registration screen without supplying any information.  So, it would
appear you don't actually need to register anything to get Fedora Core
updates.  Therefore I would consider Fedora Core's up2date asking me
for registration information (at any time) to be a bug.

Fedora Core 3 test 1 has the correct behavior; I think Fedora Core 2
worked fine with this as well, so I suspect this bug has been
resolved. Can either of you confirm?

Both behaviors seem to be fine now:

- up2date gnome applet does not ask for unnecessary registrations
- up2date watcher applet shos the "red !" when packages are available

Sorry, I haven't used Fedora since FC1.  I'll close it.
