Description Rahul Sundaram 2008-04-09 16:08:26 EDT
Description of problem:

Clicking on the "other group" makes gpk-application hang everytime. If you need
more information, let me know. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

#rpm -q gnome-packagekit PackageKit


How reproducible:

Comment 1 Rahul Sundaram 2008-04-09 16:11:06 EDT
A long list of packages showed up soon after I filed this so apparently it is
not a hang but it takes a considerably long time (about a minute) or so with the
application freezing meantime. Either incrementally list the apps or get a
progress bar or both. 
Comment 2 Richard Hughes 2008-04-11 11:29:36 EDT
What does the status bar say when it was frozen? Would the application actually
frozen or just not doing anything? Is this reproducable?
Comment 3 Rahul Sundaram 2008-04-11 11:39:38 EDT
I cant see any part of the application. It is white and looks frozen. It is
Comment 4 Richard Hughes 2008-04-12 08:31:31 EDT
I'm guessing it's because we are sorting the treeview as the packages are added
(CPU intensive) and that there are so many packages.
Comment 5 Rahul Sundaram 2008-04-12 08:40:54 EDT
When I click on any relatively large group, it constantly refreshes causing a
disturbing flicker for sometime. That should be much more smoother to not cause
a eye sore. 
Comment 6 Richard Hughes 2008-04-15 11:44:43 EDT
Can you please try my git snapshot packages, 0.2.0 as I've merged in a few fixed
for this. If it works, i'll drag then into stable. Thanks.

Comment 9 Richard Hughes 2008-04-17 05:06:43 EDT
Did you update gnome-packagekit and PackageKit at exactly the same time?
Comment 10 Rahul Sundaram 2008-04-17 09:07:17 EDT
I did a yum update. I think that's just the same time. Do you want me to try
something else now?
Comment 11 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-23 23:11:41 EDT
Still seeing this issue with gnome-packagekit-0.1.12-7.20080423.fc9.i386.

Here is a lo-tech fix that makes the ui responsive while the bazillion package
callbacks are flowing in.

Comment 13 Will Woods 2008-04-25 15:31:24 EDT
Unfixed in PackageKit-0.1.12-7.20080425.fc9, AFAICT.
Comment 14 Robin Norwood 2008-04-25 23:46:56 EDT
Fixed upstream in commit 7eba0aeb62237858c7316fa9a4c60e6209019d89
Comment 15 Richard Hughes 2008-04-26 05:22:57 EDT
Yup, please push to stable also, thanks.
