Description of problem:
When I log in, my rhn icon in the gnome panel gives the
message "checking for updates" but does not go beyond this. If I right
click on it, all options except for exit are greyed out. If I run
rhn-applet-gui from a gnome terminal I get the error below. If I run
rhn-applet-tui, eveything seems to work fine. Also, up2date seems to
work fine. One thing I notice is that the uuid in
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhn-applet file is different than the rhnuuid in
the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-uuid file. I have reinstalled both
python and rhn-applet and the problem is still there. I think this
started after I updated to RHEL3.4 from RHEL3.3 via up2date. Here are
the versions for the relevant programs:
RHEL 3.0 WS
(BTW, my RHN account has not expired)
