Description fujisan 2008-03-07 00:06:15 UTC
When running pk-update-icon, i got this error message:

$ pk-update-icon
libnm_glib_nm_state_cb: dbus returned an error.
  (org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown) The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files
Comment 1 fujisan 2008-03-07 00:09:53 UTC
my version of PK:

$ rpm -qa|grep -i packagekit
Comment 2 Richard Hughes 2008-03-09 12:09:50 UTC
Does pk-update-icon crash or is a harmless warning?
Comment 3 fujisan 2008-03-10 01:07:55 UTC
When i boot my laptop, the update icon does not appear once I log in.

pk-update-icon doesn't seem to crash:

[root@localhost ~]# ps axf|grep pk
 3418 ?        Sl     0:00          \_ pk-update-icon

and when i run yum, i have updates.

Is this reproducable? Did you shutdown the NetworkManager service?
Comment 5 fujisan 2008-03-17 07:35:47 UTC
I updated this morning to version 0.1.10-0.549.20080316git.fc8.hughsie and now it works fine.
NetworkManager was not working properly. No sign of any connection allthough I had one.
Now both are working fine.
