Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 438807
updates that require a reboot
Last modified: 2008-05-19 04:27:03 EDT
Pup displayed a special icon for updates that needed a reboot like the kernel or
hal and then at the end of the update, asked you if you wanted to reboot now or
later. The packagekit based updated does neither. Is this a new direction or
just something not yet completed?
packagekit does this too. But rawhide doesn't have the necessary metadata to
indicate need-reboot-ness of updates.
It's been a few days since I installed the beta and have been pupless but I
could have sworn it was showing me and asking for reboots. I'll double check
with tomorrows rawhide update. (I have one machine that is always running
rawhide and I reinstall at each release.)
I installed pirut/pup/yum-updatesd this morning and pup does show that the
kernel update requires a reboot. I don't know if pup has things hard coded or not.
Yes, it has a hardcoded list. When Fedora 9 is released, and the updates have
metadata then this should just work. If not, please reopen. Thanks.
F9 is now installed. I got updates this morning about security and bug fix
releases but the kernel update did not later ask about a reboot.
We get this metadata from bohdi, so it's up to the packager to decide if there
should be a reboot suggested or not.
