Description Ulrich Drepper 2002-10-09 13:47:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20020812

Description of problem:
When the GUI applet was restarted at a time when the RHN servers had severe
problems (2002-10-08) it (or the server side?) got stuck in the stage which is
described in the popup help as "Waiting until first checkin...".  The applet
never got beyond that and therefore never showed the availability of an errata.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
Hard to reproduce.

1.Screw up the RHN server as it happens in 2002-10-8 :-)
2.restart the GUI applet

Actual Results:  Never got beyond initial checkin stage

Expected Results:  Applet should have aborted the checkin and retried it later.
 When the applet finally was aborted (by hand) and immediately restarted the
communication worked just fine.

we're looking into an errata for 8.0 that fixes the various error reporting
problems in the applet, including this one.

hopefully the servers will be more stable now, though... :)

Okay I commited a fix, this should hopefully close the bugs related
to recovery on connection errors.

Comment 3 Ulrich Drepper 2003-10-06 20:02:13 EDT
Haven't seen this problem since.  If something like this pops up again it's
better to open a new bug.  Closing this one.
