Bug Fix Advisory gnome-packagekit bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1229-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-09-05
Last updated on: 2012-09-05

Details

Updated gnome-packagekit packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The gnome-packagekit packages provide session applications for the PackageKit
API.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, it was possible for the user to log out of the system or shut it
down while the PackageKit update tool was running and writing to the RPM
database (rpmdb). Consequently, rpmdb could become damaged and inconsistent due
to the unexpected termination and cause various problems with subsequent
operation of the rpm, yum, and PackageKit utilities. This update modifies
PackageKit to not allow shutting down the system when a transaction writing to
rpmdb is active, thus fixing this bug. (BZ#839197)

Users of gnome-packagekit are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which fix this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
