Screenshot showing "kerneloops needs plugin"

Description of problem:
Each time I start rhythmbox and start playing a clip, I get a popup error indicating a missing plugin:

"XXXX requires an addition plugin", where XXXX is a "random" process (e.g., kerneloops, pidgin, ...)

No music....  When I clear the error by selecting "close", the clip immediately pauses.  Pressing "play" a second time starts the music. 

This only occurs on the first "play" of a session.  Restarting rhythmbox repeats this.

I attach 2 different screenshots showing the error popup.

When this happens

What's the output of "ps aux" when this happens?

I'd like to see what arguments are passed to the helper.

I get this too on F11, always happens after rb start the first time I hit play. This is how the helper is called in that case:

/usr/libexec/gst-install-plugins-helper --transient-for=60817442 gstreamer|0.10|rhythmbox|GStreamer element input-selector|element-input-selector

--- Additional comment from pmatilai@redhat.com on 2009-06-18 14:04:53 EDT ---

Hmm, actually my case is a bit different, it's always saying "<song name> requires additional plugin" and the plugin is always gstreamer input selector. Searching for it doesn't succeed but it does play the song ok.

$ gst-inspect input-selector
Factory Details:
  Long name:	Input selector
  Class:	Generic
  Description:	N-to-1 input stream selectoring
  Binary package:	gst-plugins-bad rpmfusion rpm
  Origin URL:		http://rpmfusion.org/


Rhythmbox really shouldn't require a plugin from gst-plugins-bad. I'll try to fix this.

Tom, could you clone the bug against gnome-packagekit? The "kerneloops needs this" is bogus, and a bug in GPK.

Tom, is this just on rawhide or F11 also? What exact versions of gnome-packagekit and PackageKit have you got installed?
Comment 2 Tom London 2009-06-19 09:22:20 EDT
Oops... Sorry for the weak report.

I only noticed this when I updated to rawhide (i.e., downloaded/installed fc12 packages).

Here are my packages:

Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2009-06-22 07:38:54 EDT
This is due to me miss-porting the PID lookup code in the polkit1 patch.

    Look for PIDs on the session and system busses. Fixes rh#506817

I'll do a new release next week and push to rawhide. Thanks for the report.
