Description Todd Warner 2002-08-26 10:33:29 UTC
Description of Problem:
NOTE: dialup environment

No matter how long computer has been connected, the first time the applet is
clicked, I get a "Network Error -12: host not found" dialog. I then click
OK to acknowledge and the ? mark goes away immediately.... subsequent click
works as expected.

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

How Reproducible:
Every initial usage.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Dialup
2. Start/click applet (either immediately after 1 or wait)

Actual Results:
"Network Error -12: host not found" dialog box.
See attached png

Expected Results:
rhn-applet logs in... or does what it does (maybe says... busy?)

Bug opened 2002-08-26.
Why is this still in a NEW state?

Comment 3 Daniel Veillard 2003-03-21 22:01:26 UTC
It's in a new state because it didn't got noticed in the change of
maintainership for that module ...
I can't reproduce this with 2.0.8, I have no dialup line available and
when using a network card with DHCP cliking in the interval where
the card is inserted but haven't yet received the IP address
the behaviour is the same as usual, i.e. the "available package"
window opens... Can you reproduce the problem with 2.0.8 ?


Comment 4 Todd Warner 2003-07-18 01:28:53 UTC
I no longer have dialup.

The behavior was simply that the applet would not check every so often that it
got the connection back.

Comment 5 Todd Warner 2004-07-01 06:24:26 UTC
I suspect this is bret's bug now. Reassigning.

Comment 6 Todd Warner 2004-09-16 04:50:44 UTC
