Description Steven Legowik 2008-08-22 11:11:45 EDT
Description of problem:

When I select a package (for example 'KDE desktop') in the package manager it pops up an error window saying 'The group list was invalid' and suggesting that I refresh my cache.  In 'More details' it says 'comps categories could not be loaded'

If I close that and go to the 'System->Refresh package lists' menu I get an error window saying 'No network connection available', details 'Cannot refresh cache whilst offline'.  It also pops up a 'Refresh package lists' window that says 'Waiting for other tasks'

My network connection is alive and well since I am submitting this error report from the same machine, and yum seems to have no trouble accessing the repositories and installing software.  I uninstalled the gnome-packagekit rpm and reinstalled it using yum, but that didn't fix the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
	gpk-application 0.2.3

How reproducible:
It happens every time I start up the software installer.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'gpk-application' from shell or Administration application menu
2. select 'System->Refresh package list' menu item
Actual results:
  (as described above)

Expected results:
	Expect a list of packages appear when I select a category from the list.

Do you have the NetworkManager service running? Do you use it? What's the output from /proc/net/route when you have a valid connection?
