Shows nothing happening

Description of problem:
Whenever the Hardware Lister is started, there is an indication within the curser that it is doing something, but it is not.  It does not do anything until the user selects to Refresh.

I would be best to see it start as soon as it is opened.

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

How reproducible:
Easily and Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open program from menu

Actual results:
Nothing displayed

Expected results:
Should display computer information

Seems like this is a known problem upstream: 

Comment 2 KitchM 2013-08-05 11:46:33 EDT
Very interesting!  Thanks for pointing that out.  With a little luck, they will get this fixed.

Thanks much.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 17:14:06 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.

This bug remains in Fedora 23-Mate (and others perhaps?)
It is nice to have a good working hardware lister.
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 16:02:35 EDT
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
