Description woky 2014-08-17 15:50:36 UTC
Description of problem: Liferea can't download a feed from HTTPS URL.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): liferea-1.10.8-1.fc20.x86_64

How reproducible: By adding a feed from HTTPS URL.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add this URL as new feed: https://www.imperialviolet.org/iv-rss.xml

Actual results:
If you select new feed in left tree, this is reported in right window:
"The last update of this subscription failed!
HTTP error code 0: A network error occurred, or the other end closed the connection unexpectedly"

If you then right-click on the "Source" link and select "Open Link In Tab" this is shown:
"Unable to load page
Problem occurred while loading the URL https://www.imperialviolet.org/iv-rss.xml
TLS/SSL support not available; install glib-networking"

The glib-networking package is installed however:
# rpm -q glib-networking 

Expected results: The Liferea should fetch the feed from HTTPS URL.

Comment 1 woky 2014-08-17 15:55:22 UTC
For completnes: It's not always possible to workaround it by using non-SSL feed URL since it may be redirected to SSL URL (which is the case of feed URL in previous message).

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 12:39:22 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2015-06-29 22:06:22 UTC
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
