gnome user agent hangs during download
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
I select multiple files for update/installation. During download, the user agent hangs forever after
transferring 0-a few rpm's and headers. It always hangs initiating the start of a new transfer, not
in the middle of an existing transfer. If I kill the up2date process(es), and restart, it will transfer
0-a few rpm's. I go on like this until all have been downloaded, and then the install portion proceeds
normally. I am using the latest and greatest up2date. I am connecting via a DSL line with a static
IP. The computation for necessary updates is also very slow, a couple of minutes before file transfer
(on a 166MZ Pentium with 128MB of RAM). The combination of hanging, slowness, and the fact
that you have to restart the whole lengthy process to update additional files, makes this software
totally unusable currently. If it were me, I would be embarrassed to ship it.
if you run update agent from a command prompt, do you get a sequence of error
messages that you can post here? Without more information, I cannot accurately
diagnose what is happening.
closed due to lack of additional feedback, and thus inability to further
diagnose the problem.
