Comment 1 antonio montagnani 2004-12-13 09:27:58 UTC
Disinstalled up2date, up2date-gnome, firtsboot and rhn-applet, then
re-installed same packages, but still no improvement.
What is locking my poor RHN applet??

Is the output of starting rhn-applet-gui in a terminal.
RHN is working fine, only the icon on the min menu is still freezing

Comment 3 antonio montagnani 2004-12-20 10:39:42 UTC
It seems that is failing to initialize source.

This for me is mysterious as I can update regularly by RedHat Network
(even this morning).

Any hint?

Comment 4 antonio montagnani 2005-01-17 14:58:26 UTC
It seems that the following line is the problem

>> #dir personale /home/antoniomontagnani/software/

and that bug (for fc3test) has been already reported!!!


Comment 5 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 21:16:55 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Comment 6 John Thacker 2006-10-29 15:02:30 UTC
Closing per lack of response to previous comment.  If this still occurs on FC3
or FC4 and is a security issue, please assign to Fedora Legacy and the
appropriate version.  The bug could also be filed against RHEL if it is relevant

up2date has been replaced by pirut and pup in FC5 and FC6, the still fully
supported versions of Fedora Core, so this bug will not be fixed unless it is a
security issue.
