7.170. PackageKit

Updated PackageKit packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The PackageKit packages provide a D-Bus abstraction layer that allows the session user to manage packages in a secure way using a cross-distribution, cross-architecture API.

Bug Fix

BZ#735597
Prior to this update, the PackageKit daemon could abort with a segmentation fault when the user tried to authenticate with PolicyKit if the "/usr/sbin/consolekit" process failed or was manually stopped. This update modifies the underlying code so that PackageKit no longer fails when unable to access ConsoleKit. Now, a console warning message is displayed for PackageKit instead.
All users of PackageKit are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
