Updated gnome-packagekit packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The gnome-packagekit packages provide session applications for the PackageKit API.
- Previously, if a search query was issued in the gnome-packagekit GUI before the list of packages in the left pane was populated, gnome-packagekit became unresponsive. With this update, gnome-packagekit has been modified so that it does not permit search queries before loading the package list. As a result, gnome-packagekit no longer hangs in the described case.
- Prior to this update, the "Install Updates" button in the gpk-update-viewer GUI was incorrectly re-enabled when the authentication dialog started. This bug has been fixed, and the button remains disabled when the authentication dialog appears.
Users of gnome-packagekit are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
