Description David Monniaux 2002-12-04 11:08:24 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003 Description of problem: When asking to retrieve stock quotes (Tools -> Price editor -> Get quotes), gnucash dies with a SIGPIPE. The reason is that the Finance::Quote Perl module is not installed (which is done either by running update-finance-quote or getting it manually from CPAN). gnucash should NOT get killed by such a problem - it should display a meaningful error message. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Run gnucash 2.Creation a foreign currency account (say, currency = USD, security = EUR) 3.Tools -> Price editor -> Get quotes Actual Results: gnucash dies with SIGPIPE. Expected Results: gnucash should have: - either fetched the currency information from the WWW (possible if Finance::Quote is installed) - either complained about Finance::Quote not being installed. Additional info: The problem is fixed by running update-finance-quote or installing manually Finance::Quote from CPAN.

In RedHat Linux 9, gnucash no longer crashes when requesting stock quotes--but it does ask you to run 'update-finance-quote' to get Finance::Quote. (It seems to me that this module should be available as an RPM from RedHat--I'm currently searching for one, but no luck yet...)

Closing bugs from older, end-of-life releases. Apologies for any lack of response. Please attempt to reproduce problems on a current distro, such as Fedora Core 3.
