Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.select many packages
Actual Results: up2date starts to sleep
Expected Results: packages should haven retreived and thereafter installed
The problem has not been seen if only a small numer of packages are selected.
Are you able to give a list of the packages selected at the time you saw this
No,unforunately not. By selecting a small subset of the avaialable
updates for each pass of up2date the system was finally full uppgraded.
But there was no clear coupling between the pacakges selected and the
occuruance of the probolem. The main thing seemed to be number of packages
The more packages the bigger the probability of the problem occuring.
But one piece of addtional information:
The time stamp of the error message in /var/log/up2date
seems to be from the time when up2date was killed with ctrl c.
Not from the time whend up2date seemd to be hanging.
