Description Bernard Johnson 2006-12-06 03:58:07 UTC
Description of problem:
Puplet refresh does not work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Let system run without logging out.
2.  Wait until updates are available.
3.  Right-click -> refresh puplet.  Watch it tell you nothing is new.
4.  Run "yum update".  Notice that there are things that are new.

I've notice upon reboot when I log back in, I tend to be notified of new packages.
Actual results:
Puplet does not refresh.

Expected results:
New packages found.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-12-06 16:10:00 UTC
Can you try stopping the yum-updatesd service, and then running it from a
terminal as root with:
  /usr/sbin/yum-updatesd --no-fork

And then see if there are any errors when you refresh?

Comment 2 Bernard Johnson 2006-12-06 20:14:23 UTC
No, there are no errors.

When I turned on my computer today, it said there were 3 package updates
available.  I stopped yum-updatesd and ran it from a terminal as you suggested.
 A refresh showed that there were still 3 packages available.  No errors were
reported in the terminal.

A "yum update" from another terminal revealed that there were 12 packages
available for update.

A refresh of Puplet show 3 packages available.

Comment 3 Bernard Johnson 2006-12-06 20:18:42 UTC
I also tried killing Puplet and restarting it and it still reports 3 packages.

screenshot of bad behaviour

Exiting Puplet and restarting it still shows that I have no updates.  Running
Pup shows that I have 10 updates.

$ rpm -qf `which puplet`

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2007-08-10 19:16:32 UTC
With updated yum-updatesd and pirut packages currently in rawhide, the behavior
is far more solid.  The set will be pushed back as an F7 update soon
