Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439957
Last modified: 2013-03-13 01:43:06 EDT
Description of problem:
There is no way to cancel tasks once initiated. What happens when you decide to
install a package and then realize it is large. ex: openarena. Worse, if i queue
tasks and decide I want to cancel the one in the middle to get the other ones
done, I can't do that either.
You can do that if you click on the icon in the system tray. No?
Didn't work for me or maybe I didn't understand what to do. If I have a list of
tasks queued or just one, I want to be able to selectively cancel any task.
Yes, you can do that now. If you make sure you are running gpk-update-icon and
then any tasks are on the drop down. If you click the task, it will show it's
status and allow you to cancel it.
We aren't really talking about the same thing. When the update applet pops up in
the sys tray showing updates, click update system and watch the updates proceed.
Realize that you actually want to leave out some updates and try to cancel it.
Click on sys try icon, there is no cancel button. That's what i was looking for.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Don't you get a new icon with the PK status and the queued jobs?
Yes, that does work now. The interface isn't very obvious but I don't have any
immediate ideas on how to improve that. Feel free to close this bug.
