Description Adam Williamson 2021-03-17 00:14:31 UTC
When current Fedora 34 KDE live images are booted live, they show update notifications - shortly after the session starts, you get a notification "Updates available" from "Discover", with button "View Updates". Update notifications are supposed to be suppressed in live sessions. This violates Final criterion "Release-blocking desktops must notify the user of available updates, but must not do so when running as a live image.", so proposing as a Final blocker.

Comment 1 Adam Williamson 2021-03-17 00:15:24 UTC
Note - this may well only need a kickstart change, but I filed a bug so we can mark this as a blocker. We can't have Pagure issues as release blockers.

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2021-03-17 00:17:47 UTC
It seems this is how we handle this currently, in fedora-live-kde-base.ks:

# Disable plasma-pk-updates (bz #1436873 and 1206760)
echo "Removing plasma-pk-updates package."
rpm -e plasma-pk-updates

that blob is included in the /etc/rc.d/init.d/livesys which the kickstart creates, which gets run on boot of the live image (but not the installed system). I guess we're now getting notifications from Discover, not 'plasma-pk-updates', so that needs changing?

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2021-03-22 19:01:30 UTC
Alternatively, this sucker gets started via autostart, so that's easy enough to disable on the live image as well, of removing a package is too hackish.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2021-03-22 19:39:51 UTC
Meh, I like the autostart way better, 



Comment 6 Ben Cotton 2021-03-25 19:38:03 UTC
fedora-kickstarts PR was merged. Setting to MODIFIED for now.

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2021-03-27 00:53:43 UTC
This looks fixed in a current nightly.

Tested today's iso (20210329) and this bug really isn't here anymore.
