Description HannesF 2016-06-09 06:17:15 UTC
on rhel7.2 or centos7.2 with gnome-packagekit-3.14.3 there are problems (popups) on gui login (gnome,gdm). more details on https://access.redhat.com/solutions/195833 and http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=302761 

to prevent the popups this helps:

# vi /etc/polkit-1/rules.d/03-noproxy.rules

polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
        if (action.id == "org.freedesktop.packagekit.system-network-proxy-configure" &&
        subject.isInGroup("SETYOURGROUPHERE") ) {
                return polkit.Result.YES;

is this a packagekit bug/problem or one of the distribution rpm package?

Sorry for the impersonal message, and fingers crossed your issue no longer happens. Thanks.
