Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 496018
message bus timeout when installing an application takes too long (when triggered from nautilus missing mime handler)
Last modified: 2010-03-23 06:26:44 EDT
Description of problem:
I had this .ppt file and when double clicked I realized I had no openoffice, so I followed the hint to search for an application.
Obviously, being openoffice, it took ages to download and install. Somewhere during the process I saw an ugly warning dialog saying that the operation failed because the message bus timed out (although the installation kept going, the original "search" died).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Once, but I suspect always.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Double click a file in nautilus that has no handler, in my case a ppt when I had no openoffice installed
2. Search for a handler, accept to install it.
3. Wait until somewhere after a long time, the original "search" notifies you that it failed because of a message bus timeout, but the installation keeps going and ends succesfully.
A scary message bus timeout -operation failed- message
No scary message
After ooo-impress was installed, the file did not launch, I suspect this is because the "original operation" (the search) died, so the install was completed but no one was watching it to do something after it.
Hmm, I suspect this will be fixed with the recent timeout fixes in DBus. I'll take a look.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
