Description Patrick Steiner 2007-03-09 06:58:46 UTC
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):

How reproducible:
start puplet make a update an wait.... :-) nothing will be done anymore

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?

Comment 2 Patrick Steiner 2007-03-22 06:36:55 UTC
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:

yum-updatesd -f
Loading "installonlyn" plugin

now for over a day :-)

Comment 3 Patrick Steiner 2007-03-28 06:15:51 UTC
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.

Comment 4 Patrick Steiner 2007-03-28 06:25:30 UTC
no dbus seams to work!

if i test with this python script:

import dbus
bus = dbus.SystemBus()
obj = bus.get_object("edu.duke.linux.yum", "/Updatesd")
res = obj.GetUpdateInfo(dbus_interface="edu.duke.linux.yum")
print res

i get some infos back.

Comment 5 Patrick Steiner 2007-03-28 07:03:30 UTC
it think this has something to do with this bug:

Comment 6 Patrick Steiner 2007-03-28 09:23:32 UTC
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.
