Puplet (Pirut) only updates once
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:58 EST
Description of problem:
If i start puplet it automatically notifies updates, but this only works once, i
have to restart the application (or restart my machine) to get a new
notification. but the applications always runs i the background. is this normal?
btw. i know i can do a yum update but a visual notification would be nicer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
start puplet make a update an wait.... :-) nothing will be done anymore
Steps to Reproduce:
This should work fine; it does for me. Can you try running yum-updatesd in the
foreground of a terminal (yum-updatesd -f) and then puplet in another and see if
there are any errors reported?
i have testet the command yum-updatesd -f now on 2 different machines (one was
fresh installed yesterday).
on the fresh installed machine i get no output. on the second one yum-updatesd
now only outputs:
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
now for over a day :-)
i think i found the problem. shouldn't yum-updatesd send dbus messages? if i run
dbus-monitor i cant see any message, but in /etc/yum/yum-updatesd.conf
emit_via = dbus is set.
no dbus seams to work!
if i test with this python script:
bus = dbus.SystemBus()
obj = bus.get_object("edu.duke.linux.yum", "/Updatesd")
res = obj.GetUpdateInfo(dbus_interface="edu.duke.linux.yum")
i get some infos back.
it think this has something to do with this bug:
i looked into /usr/bin/puplet
shouldnt the function _refreshInfo called every 10 mins?
i have added a simple print command into this function but this is only called once.
