Description Rodrigo Trujillo 2009-07-10 09:02:13 UTC
Overview: 
    After applying all updates, the tool hangs on scanning installed applications. See screenshot.


Steps to Reproduce:

    I'm not sure what is causing this problem and how to start it. At some time something becomes inconsistent and it hangs.
    I had thoughts that the problem would be related to some extra yum plugins I have in my system, but even disabling all plugins, the problem persisted.


Actual Results: 
    In Fedora 10 the application hangs, clicking on close button makes the window close, but gpk-update-viewer remains running in background. I had to kill it manually.
    On Fedora 11 it has the same behavior, but quitting the application seems to works around this issue.

    On Fedora 10, I could 'fix' the problem (apparently) setting ScanDesktopFiles=false' in /etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf and rebooting the machine.
