Pup crashes with no network.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:21 EST
Description of problem:
If pup is started and the network conenction is inactive. Pup crashes almost
instantly. An error message briefly appears on the screen and then pup and the
error message disappear.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Network conenction is inactive (for any reason).
2. Start pup.
3. It "barfs".
I'd expect an informative error message and for it not to just "abort". I
should have been able to activate my network connection and then jsut tell pup
Can you give the error message you receive? Running from a terminal might help
to keep the error persistent.
Also, what version of pup is installed?
The error is constant if you attempt to run pup (Software Updater) with no
network / internet connectivity. Below is an error dump from pup when this is
