gpk-update-viewer crash on startup or running from PackageKit Update Applet
Last modified: 2008-07-04 05:39:36 EDT
Description of problem:
As a user, not in root console, I cannot run update process.
Every time I try to run gpk-update-viewer it crashes, not depending on how I run
it, is it from Main Menu or by clicking Show Updates in PackageKit Update Applet.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
65% times when I do updates on Fedora 9. Sometimes it works and prompts me for a
root password in window, but usualy not, it crashes before. All I can do is to
log as root and run "yum update" or gpk-update-viewer manually.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. click on Show Updates in PackageKit Update Applet or use Main Menu >
Administration or type in terminal gpk-update-viewer
2. watch as small gray window entitled "Update System" shows up for a second
After clicking on Show Updates in Applet small window appears and disappears.
After clicking on Show Updates in Applet updates are displayed. And one could
choose what to do than.

When you run it under gdb, can you please type "bt" when it crashes to get the
backtrace. Also, please install the debuginfo's for PolicyKit and
PolicyKit-gnome -- thanks.
