Description Julien Roubieu 2009-05-06 19:47:18 UTC
I just installed Fedora 10 in a VMware Fusion VM (OSX), and it's the first software update it does.
I'm getting the following trace :

Hi there,
This bug report is very old and based on a version not supported anymore. By upgrading to a newer version of PackageKit you could receive bug fixes and new functionality. You may need to upgrade your Linux distribution to obtain a newer version of PackageKit.
Please feel free to reopen this bug if the problem still occurs with the latest version.
