Description James Pearson 2013-07-12 11:26:21 EDT
Description of problem:

We've now had a couple of third party application installers that use zenity with the '--no-cancel' option in progress mode

Unfortunately, the version of zenity that ships with RHEL 6 is quite old and doesn't support the '--no-cancel' option in progress mode

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run: zenity --progress --no-cancel

Actual results:

This option is not available. Please see --help for all possible usages.

Expected results:

zenity runs in progress mode without a Cancel button

Additional info:

The last 2.x series release of zenity (2.32.1) supports this option - could zenity be upgraded to this version for RHEL 6 ?
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-13 19:22:47 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
