Description of problem:
This is similar to bug 112361 and might as well be filed as a
duplicate. But this is on Fedora Core 2 Test 1, not just FC1.
When I switch themes the first time during a session rhn-applet will
crash. However, if I restart rhn-applet it will not crash upon
subsequent theme changes. This is observed using both FC2t1 provided
themes and custom themes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to a gnome session
2. Change theme
3. Change theme again.
Actual Results: rhn-applet will crash sometimes after step 2. If rhn-
applet is re-launched after step 2 it will never crash after step 3,
regardless of the number of times step 3 is repeated.
Expected Results: rhn-applet should not crash.
rhn-applet was replaced by pirut and put (package pirut) as of FC5. Only FC5
and FC6 are currently fully supported; FC3 and FC4 are supported for security
fixes only. If this bug occurs in FC3 or FC4 and is a security bug, please
change the product to Fedora Extras and the version to match. If you can verify
that the bug exists in RHEL as well, please change the product and version
The codebase for pirut and pup is quite different, but if a similar bug exists
in pirut and pup in FC5 or FC6, please change the product to pirut and the
version appropriately and update the bug report.
We apologize that the bug was not fixed before now. The status will be changed
to NEEDINFO, and if the bug is not updated with evidence that it is a security
bug or a bug that affects RHEL, it will be closed.
Note that rhn-applet may still be present on upgraded systems, and in general
will not function correctly on such systems. That is not a bug; anaconda does
not generally erase removed packages upon upgrades.
Closing per previous comment.
