Description of problem:
rhn-applet reports that openssl095a and openssl096 need updating. When running
up2date, up2date claims that the system is up2date. The rhn-applet button
continues to flash red.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Update from 7.3 to 8.0
I updated my system at work from 7.3 to 8.0 and I don't have this problem there.
The one difference is that my system at home is using a red hat network
enterprise lisense where as I'm using the free update from home.
To be specific, rhn-applet says that I have openssl095a-0.9.5a-16 installed and
openssl095a-0.9.5a-18: is available and openssl096-0.9.6-11 is installed and
openssl096-0.9.6.13: is available. I do take note of the ":" at the end of the
"available" package name string.
I'm seeing the same kinda stuff here.
I upgraded 7.3 to 8.0.
now rhn_applet flashes red and claims I need to upgrade xinetd
(xinetd-2.3.7-2 -> xinetd-2.3.9-0.83) (2.3.7-2 is indeed installed)
up2date says i don't have anything to upgrade.
checking updates.redhat.com shows that I don't have to upgrade xinetd.
I noticed that if I run rhn_applet as root is says my system is up-to-date.
If I run rhn_applet as a user it claims i need to upgrade xinetd.
This used to work fine in RH 7.3
I tried removing rhn_* up2date* and reinstalling it from 8.0 cd
Seems a problem of RPM database cache incoherency left after an
upgrade. We have a fix for that which will be propagated in
rhn-applet >= 2.0.4
This seems to be fixed.
