Description Ben Sanchez 2003-02-10 23:51:07 UTC

Description of problem:
I ran up2date today and updated several packages (all available since the new
kernal mod last week, which I ran by itself, then picked up the other rpm that
was available then, and the rest that came out since, including xpdf-1.01-10:1.

up2date and it's circular icon in the bottom right corner of my gnome bar on the
gnome desktop are telling me I need to update xpdf to the version I just installed.

When I run up2date, it checks the web, and finds I am up2date, as it should.
Problem is, the indication on the desktop does not go away, and if I click on
it, I still see up2date's window telling me I need to update the xpdf package.

This seems to be a bug, and I did not see any other reports of it on the web,
not exactly this bug anyway. downloading the new rpm from your support eratta
site and doing 

rpm -Fvh xpdf-1.01-10.i386.rpm

as root produces no output, just returns, so I guess that means it thinks there
was no refresh to do?

So far I have never seen this behaviour.
The steps indocated are not reproctible,
the applet does cache the content list of the rpm database
internally but also check the timestamp of the database
on the filesystem to invalidate the cache. The only way
I could imagine the behaviour indicated to happen is if the
time on the machine went backward at some point or if the
/var partition don't indicate modification time for the
What happen if you restart the applet ?
