Description Chris Ricker 2003-01-09 22:54:16 EST
My system is fully up2date:

[kaboom@verdande kaboom]$ sudo up2date --nox -u

Fetching package list for channel: redhat-linux-i386-8.0...
########################################

Fetching Obsoletes list for channel: redhat-linux-i386-8.0...
########################################

Fetching rpm headers...
None of the packages you requested were found, or they are already updated.
[kaboom@verdande kaboom]$ 

Yet the rhn-applet is still red and blinking, indicating that updates are
available. When I click on it, it tells me that I have ethereal-gnome-0.9.6-1
installed, and that ethereal-gnome-0.9.8-0.80.0 is available.

This is wrong -- I already have 0.9.8 installed:

[kaboom@verdande kaboom]$ rpm -q ethereal
ethereal-0.9.8-0.80.0
[kaboom@verdande kaboom]$ rpm -q ethereal-gnome
ethereal-gnome-0.9.8-0.80.0
[kaboom@verdande kaboom]$

Hum, the synchronization of the applet status on RPM database changes
should have been improved, did you had a similar problem recently ?
