Description of problem:
This isn't a bug so much with switchdesk itself, it's with the
up2date/rhn programs, but it's the only package I see affected by it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on the ! icon on the panel
2.The RHN alert notification tool will list switchdesk. Click Launch
3.Up2date will not list an update for switchdesk
Actual Results: up2date reports the system is up to date.
Expected Results: up2date should have show the switchdesk update (or
the rhn applet shouldn't have reported it, one of the two).
it's not a bug in switchdesk. it's in up2date
I'm going to chime in on this one. I had the same problem with
yum(the current back-end for up2date... I think). I downloaded apt
from freshrpms and was able to update correctly(and a heck of a lot
faster, I might add).
