Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 517907
Too many notification windows (1 per restart or logout-requiring update)
Last modified: 2009-08-18 04:11:32 EDT
Description of problem:
If 3 packages require a system restart, and 4 other require a logout, 7
notification window appear on top of each other.
I would rather expect one or two windows with a summary.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.4.1.1-2.fc11
How reproducible: very often
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Juste wait for a couple of restart or logout-requiring updates to happen
2. approve the update
Actual results: There are as many notification windows as updates
Expected results: One window requiring the a logout if there are only logout-requiring updates, or a restart if there is a restart-requiring update
Additional info: I already reported the bug on bugs.kde.org and was told that it was Fedora's problem.

Yeah, there's a relevant PackageKit bug for numerous restart requests too, don't have that handy offhand.

I think the "fedora problem" mentioned is about the timing of update notifications, not the number of them. See bug #513755.
I'm not sure whether any consensus has been reached on whether kpackagekit or the PackageKit backend are responsible for delaying the notifications until the update is complete.

There's nothing in the PackageKit spec about timing, so the frontend has to queue these, not the daemon or backend.
