Advisory: RHBA-2009:1559-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2009-11-09
Last updated on: 2009-11-09

Details

Updated dbus-python packages that fix an issue with the puplet package
updater are now available for Red hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The dbus-python package provides a Python binding to the D-Bus system
message bus.

This updated dbus-python package fixes the following bug:

* the puplet icon in the GNOME Notification Area displays notifications
when updated packages are available. However, due to an error in the
dbus-python bindings, when updates were available, puplet failed to display
a notification. This update corrects the dbus-python bindings with the
result that puplet is once again able to notify the user of available
updates. (BZ#532142)

All users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves
this issue.
