Summary: update applet attemps to run while there is no network
and complains
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.2

Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: Other

I have a laptop that is often off internet. Nevertheless, I get several times a
day a popup complaining that there is no network and please check settings -
there is no mention about which program is complaining or what settings it is
talking about. I know that it is the update applet, of course.

Obviously, I know I have no network and there is nothing to configure (except
perhaps never check for updates). It would be preferable if the applet kept
silence and simply tried, silently, some other time. Perhaps change color of
the icon and leave information there, but do not interrupt the user.

Some things could be configurable. The hour for checking could be configurable,
for example.
