Annoying and useless error messages: An internal system error has occurred
Last modified: 2008-04-26 04:57:32 EDT
Description of problem:
When packagekit (pk-update-icon) cannot connect to the all configured
repositories I get very frequent error bubble messages that don't really say
anything: An internal system error has occurred.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. change one configured repository to use baseurl that timeouts
2. wait an hour
You get one useless error message per hour
Actual error message (repository foobar has network problems: connection timed
One error message per day
Should be fixed in 0.1.10.
Please reopen if this is still a problem.
With gnome-packagekit-0.1.10-1.fc9.i386 I still have to problems:
1) Error message is now much better but it is abruptly cut on "or" word:
"No network connection available: Problem with loading repository metadata,
this can be caused by network problems or"
2) I still get those bubble messages way too often. I think there should be
limiter on how often packagekit will show this message. Once a day could be good
3) Error message says "No network connection available" but I have working
network connection :) The real problem is that one of the repositories don't
response (timeout). Maybe the message still needs some fine tuning :)
This is fixed upstream now.
