Description Adam Williamson 2011-02-17 20:08:21 UTC
We intend to suppress checking for available updates when booting live. fedora-live-base has all this code to that effect:

# don't do packagekit checking by default
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source=xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults -s -t string /apps/gnome-packagekit/update-icon/frequency_get_updates never >/dev/null
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source=xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults -s -t string /apps/gnome-packagekit/update-icon/frequency_get_upgrades never >/dev/null
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source=xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults -s -t string /apps/gnome-packagekit/update-icon/frequency_refresh_cache never >/dev/null
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source=xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults -s -t bool /apps/gnome-packagekit/update-icon/notify_available false >/dev/null
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source=xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults -s -t bool /apps/gnome-packagekit/update-icon/notify_distro_upgrades false >/dev/null
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source=xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults -s -t bool /apps/gnome-packagekit/enable_check_firmware false >/dev/null
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source=xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults -s -t bool /apps/gnome-packagekit/enable_check_hardware false >/dev/null
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source=xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults -s -t bool /apps/gnome-packagekit/enable_codec_helper false >/dev/null
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source=xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults -s -t bool /apps/gnome-packagekit/enable_font_helper false >/dev/null
gconftool-2 --direct --config-source=xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults -s -t bool /apps/gnome-packagekit/enable_mime_type_helper false >/dev/null

however, for F15 Alpha TC2 spins, this doesn't work; they still check for updates when booted live. I believe this may be because gnome-packagekit's settings have moved to gsettings/dconf. This will block the Beta release, due to criterion "The desktop default update manager must not periodically check for updates when the system is booted live, but must periodically check for updates when running on an installed system " - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_15_Beta_Release_Criteria .
