Description of problem:
Activation for Up2date for the Redhat Network does not save profile. Everytime I bootup and check for updates, I have to re-activate Up2date to check for new updates.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.exit RHN Alert Icon from panel
3.re-intitialize RHN Alert Icon and click
4. Subscription Alert window appears to request to Activate Up2date
Actual Results: step #4
Expected Results: Activation of Up2date should have remained after initial setting of profile and when clicking on the Alert icon, it should check for new updates without asking to re-Activate Up2date service.
This is a duplicate of bug #158095, which is a bug in rhn-applet, not up2date.
BTW, you can run up2date without activating this, they're talking about a
different subscription service. In fact, since rhn-applet is broken in that it
doesn't show available updates, there's no reason to left-click on the applet
right now anyway. Hopefully when rhn-applet is updated, both bugs will be fixed.
up2date 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 appropriately.
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.
Closing per previous message.
