Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 590140
Clicking Restart or Log out button in notification doesn't do anything
Last modified: 2010-09-29 02:14:50 EDT
Description of problem:
After an update Kpackagekit sometimes offers a logout or restart notification. Clicking the "Logout" or "Restart" button in that notification doesn't do anything. Btw. Actually, two notifications pop up: (1) before a transaction starts and (2) after it has finished.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The restart notification appears when 'critical' updates (eg. kernel, glibc) are installed. This notification contains two button "Restart" and "Not Now". No now dismisses the notification. A log out notification looks the same.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait until 'critical' update or update that needs a log out, is available
2. Install update
3. Press "Restart" or "Logout" button
System reboots or logs user out

Thanks for the bug report, this is now fixed in (0.6.1):
fyi, i think this bug should stand on its own
because specifically was about the 'failing restart button'
but for completeness note that the 'failing restart button' subject does
have passing mentions in one of the other bugs:
for completeness, the following reference the restart notification being too early:
ps: looking forward to the upstream fix moving downstream, thanks for reporting it :')
Last night I had to reboot after an update, running kpackagekit 0.6.1-1. As expected the notification button was working. I think, kpackagekit is back again.
Thanks for the really great work!
P.S. This report can be closed.
i can also confirm that the restart button is working for me as well as of kpackagekit-0.6.1-1.fc13 (x86_64)
