Description J.C. Molet 2010-12-08 19:05:49 UTC
Description of problem:

When you try to open up a second instance of the subscription-manager-gui it doesn't open (this is the correct behavior), but there is no friendly message letting you know that the program is already open in another instance.  Currently it looks like it fails without reason.

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install subscription-manager and subscription-manager-gui on a machine.
2. Open up one instance of subscription manager gui.
3. Open up a second instance of subscription manager gui.
Actual results:

The program doesn't open and no error message is given:

[root@mgmt5 ~]# subscription-manager-gui 
[root@mgmt5 ~]#

Expected results:

The program would let you know that it is already open with a message printed to the console.

Comment 1 Justin Harris 2010-12-13 14:34:48 UTC
Added a model dialog with a message that an instance is already running.

Comment 2 J.C. Molet 2010-12-13 19:17:40 UTC

[root@jmolet-vm1 ~]# subscription-manager-gui &
[1] 30507
[root@jmolet-vm1 ~]# subscription-manager-gui
subscription-manager-gui is already running
[root@jmolet-vm1 ~]# 

(this is also followed by a gui pop-up saying the same thing).

Bug looks fixed.
