Description of problem:
Trying to administer system with Sortware Manager. If I down load packages
this works OK. When I use the option button to use up2date--nothing
Am I missing something?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into Software manager
2. Pick package
3. Hit button that says use Up2date--web page comes up that says you
Actual Results: As far as I can tell, nothing happens and then the page
Expected Results: ?? Shouldn't it lauch up2date and show me the package
and then install?
I am assuming that you are clicking the "RPM Update" button, in which case what
actually happens is that an action item is written so that the next time that
the rhnsd daemon runs on your machine, it checks in with the RHN servers and
finds that it needs to download and install the package you indicated. So, the
only thing which happens at the time that you click the button is that the
action item is written.
