Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 227979
Pup gui looks like it hung
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
Description of problem:
When you update the system using pup the window goes all grey as if crashed,
this tends to freak users out. In casual conversation with users this is the one
aspect they hate the most about Fedora, by far.
The bug also applies to FC6.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use pup to update
the update works but the UI looks like it hung
Nicely updated UI to show progress and assure users that their lovely Fedora is
Same here. I clicked "Apply updates" and the window went gray; then nearly 10
minutes later the progress dialog of "Downloading packages..." showed up. It's
very disconcerting and a bit disheartening if you don't my saying so.
Created attachment 149192 [details]
to show debug output of pirut/pup crash.
This is the debug save from pirut crash, but a very similar error happens when
running either pirut or pup.
This should be better with pirut 1.3.5 and yum 3.1.6
