Description Lubos Kocman 2010-07-25 19:19:47 UTC
Description of problem:

Software Update applet is getting list updates each 5 seconds. This makes him completely unusable. 

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

$ rpm -qa PackageKit*

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to gnome
2. Click on the orange "star-like" icon placed on gnome-panel signalizing that updates are available
Actual results:

Dialog gets refreshed every 5 seconds. This makes him completely unusable

Expected results:

Update applet should get list of updates in reasonable interval.

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-07-25 19:37:33 UTC
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **

Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2010-07-28 15:16:11 UTC
Could you please get the output of:

killall gpk-update-icon
gpk-update-icon --verbose

and attach it to this bug. The only reason the update viewer is meant to self-refresh is:

a) when the network state changes
b) when the number of updates changes (i.e. the user does yum update on the command line)
c) any of the repos changes enabled state

So I'm kinda confused which of those are causing the 5 second refresh. Thanks.

Could you try the build here please: http://brewweb.devel.redhat.com/brew/taskinfo?taskID=2645366

You'll need to restart after installing the update.
