Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212732
yum-updatesd doesn't know I'm using NetworkManager
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:55:53 EST
1. Set up NetworkManager on your machine (chkconfig NetworkManager on; service
2. log in
3. Have yum-updatesd complain about missing network connectivity
This won't be true a couple of seconds afterwards, when NetworkManager connects
to the wireless network.
Adding NetworkManager support would also allow for the notification area icon to
go away, as there wouldn't be any needs for yum-updatesd to present a "refresh"
button. The icon would only be there when there are updates to be installed.
Seems reasonable; I'll try to throw something together soon-ish.
Hrmmm, this is a little problematic at present due to start order.
NetworkManager starts way late (98) and that's after yum-updatesd.
If this it to be reasonable to consider, then NetworkManager is going to have to
start earlier; likely on par with when networking normally starts
Yes, I see this every time on my laptop. The message from yum-updatesd appears
whilst I'm typing in the gnome-keyring password, which is obviously needed in
order for the wireless connection to work.

This still happens on fresh F7 install and package update.
yum-updatesd knows about the status of NetworkManager now and sends messages
appropriately. puplet is still notifying on the failure, but that's going to be
delayed to the second failure soon (as knowing that you're not receiving updates
because you're not online does have value; we just want to avoid the case of
where you just logged in)
