Description of problem:
while up2date-gnome worked perfectly before the upgrade to RH9, now it
produces the following error:
(up2date:1561): Gdk-WARNING **: DESKTOP_STARTUP_ID contains invalid UTF-8
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 993, in ?
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 772, in main
from up2date_client import gui
File "gui.py", line 24, in ?
ImportError: No module named ui
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run up2date on an X-Server
Actual Results: See error-msg.
Expected Results: What would one expect??? =:))))
what was the upgrade to 9 from?
the module in question should be in the
can you verify that package is installed?
rpm -q gnome-python2
It is required by the up2date-gnome package, so
it should be there, but the error you quote
seems to indicate it is not.
What mechanism was used to upgrade to 9?
upgrade was from RH8.0 to RH9.
[vmeyer@tassilo vmeyer]$rpm -V gnome-python2
[vmeyer@tassilo vmeyer]$rpm -q gnome-python2
Package appears to be correctly installed
The mechanism to upgarde was rpm in conjunction with up2date.
The "old" up2date was launched from the commandline with
"up2date -d up2date"
Several dependencies were checked and a few additional packages were downloaded.
I don't recall all of them, but all the packages in question were put in a
seperate folder from which the command
rpm -Uvh *.rpm
Installation worked without errors.
Meanwhile not even the commandline-version works.
I get the error:
[root@tassilo root]$up2date -l
There was an SSL error: [('SSL routines', 'SSL23_WRITE', 'ssl handshake failure')]
A common cause of this error is the system time being incorrect. Verify that the
time on this system is correct.
I can set the time to whatever time I want. I can change the value of TZ to
whatever zone I please: I always get the error
Removing security status - upgrading from 8.0 to 9 by just updating the rpms may
well have unexpected side effects.
I had the same problem.
A fix is to remove the "orphaned" directory
/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/gnome so that the right directory
/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gnome gets used.
Also may need to update libbonobo. The one that came with RH8 was
missing a few files.
