Description Jeremy 2003-02-18 14:12:35 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
The Critical update icon for the Redhat Network works great when you log 
directly onto the machine, but not when you VNC a gnome session.

I can still get Critical updates via the "up2date" command, however the icon is 
an extremely usefull tool to have to quickly check to see if any critical 
patches need to be installed when they become available.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start VNC server with default settings
2.VNC from a remote machine

Assigning to rhn-applet.

Comment 2 Jiří Vyskočil 2004-01-09 15:21:56 UTC
I have the same problem. It seems to me, that the icon first
disappeared after applying those patches related to 'the up2date SSL
bug' or wahtewer it was called (-> downloading several packages
manually from errata page)

Hum, the original bug report indicated Red Hat 8 ...
There have been serious bug fixes since then, grabbing
the latest version rhn-applet-2.1.4
and testing with it might help.
Rebuild from source if needed... and report if the problem persists...
