Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 491955
gweather-applet locks up if started before Internet connection is available
Last modified: 2009-11-18 08:39:57 EST
Description of problem:
If an Internet connection is not available immediately upon login, a previously installed gweather-applet locks up in the "Updating..." state and cannot be made to display data.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and configure gweather applet in a panel on a system with its only Internet connection wireless, controlled by Network Manager, and started only upon login.
2. Log out.
3. Log back in.
The display in the panel shows only "--", mouseover shows the state stuck in "Updating...". The applet never recovers, even if preference changes are made.
Once the network connection becomes available, the applet should update successfully and display correct data.
Gnome desktop. Network Manager establishes a wireless network connection about 10 seconds after login. Applet works fine if a network connection was established at boot time.
I have the exact same problem. I am running Fedora 10 on an HP Pavilion laptop with AMD64 dual processor.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Has been fixed in FC11, version 2.26.3-1.fc11
