Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 249200
False "system not receiving updates" alerts on wireless laptops
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:11 EST
Description of problem:
On wireless laptops, that use NetworkManager, pirut sometimes erroneously
flashes "system not receiving updates" alerts in the panel tray area.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F7 on a laptop. Use NetworkManager to set up a connection to your
wireless access point.
2. Boot the laptop
3. Log in
4. When you're prompted to enter the password to unlock the Gnome keyring, wait
a varying period of time, usually 30 seconds-one minute is sufficient, before
entering the password.
Sometimes pirut will complain that the system is not receiving updates.
Pirut should be somehow aware that until the wireless connection is established,
all yum repositories will not be accessible.
Until the wireless connection to the access point is established, there's no
access to yum repositories, which causes pirut to assume that the laptop has no
connectivity at all.
