Description Brent Fox 2004-07-14 14:25:11 UTC
This is with FC3test1.  In the Main Menu->System Tools menu, there are
entries for:
Red Hat Network
Red Hat Netowrk Alert Icon

As far as I know, RHN doesn't work with Fedora.  Does the rhn-applet
actually do anything on Fedora systems?  If not, we should remove it
from the distro.  If it does something, we should conditionalize the
.desktop files so that it says something other than "Red Hat Network"
on Fedora systems.

Comment 1 Brent Fox 2004-07-14 14:27:33 UTC
Also, in the System Settings menu, it says "Red Hat Network Configuration"

Comment 2 Barry K. Nathan 2004-07-28 18:26:13 UTC
Yes, RHN applet still does something -- it gives the user notification
of whether the system is fully up2date, and if it isn't, the applet
can list the packages that need updates, etc. (IIRC it's just as fully
functional with yum repos as it is with Red Hat Network itself.)

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-08-05 18:19:03 UTC
Yes, just the naming is unfortunate.
