Description of problem:
pkgenpack -u doesn't work, not even as root.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run pkgenpack -u
Actual results:
[root@lightweight tmp]# LANG=C pkgenpack -u
Failed to open package list.: '/var/lib/PackageKit/system.package-list'

Expected results:
I'm not quite sure how pkgenpack works, I would have liked to test it, but it should probably not throw an error :)

Does it succeed if you try to do "pkcon refresh" first?
Comment 2 Ville-Pekka Vainio 2009-04-15 12:49:21 EDT
Yes. This may have also had something to do with PolicyKit, I just granted myself all possible PackageKit related rights too. Maybe the error message could mention pkcon refresh and PolicyKit?
Comment 3 Ville-Pekka Vainio 2009-06-01 11:47:34 EDT
It seems I'm not able to reproduce this bug in F11 with PackageKit-0.4.8-0.1228.20090527git.fc11.i586, closing. If someone else thinks the bug still exists, please reopen.
