Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 130167
gnome-cd can't get freedb info
Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:46:31 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm behind a corporate firewall which has an http proxy. The http
proxy is set up (other gnome applications, such as the stock ticker,
use it fine). I have an audio CD ("Nockturnel Mix Sessions feat.
Robert Oleysyck", but this is true for every audio CD I try) that I
insert into the cdrom. gnome-cd is not able to download the cddb
settings for the disc. I've tried both using the default "freedb
round-robin" as well as manually selecting "freedb.freedb.org:888" via
the "CD Database" capplet, to no avail.
When I open grip, however, grip is able to download the cddb info; and
amazingly I didn't have to turn on any http proxy settings within grip.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (while behind firewall with http proxy, at least)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure gnome http proxy settings are correct.
2. Make sure gnome CD Database settings are correct.
3. Insert audio CD into drive.
4. Open gnome cd player.
gnome-cd has no disc or track info available.
gnome-cd is able to get CD info from freedb.org just as grip is able
Is grip using freedb.freedb.org?
Here is my grip config:
DB server: freedb.freedb.org
CGI path: ~cddb/cddb.cgi
DB Submit email: firstname.lastname@example.org
No secondary server set.
Use freedb extensions: Yes
Perform disc lookups automatically: Yes
Well, if gnome-cd is using your proxy, and freedb isn't, could it
actually be your proxy is blocking gnome-cd? What if you unset it?
Both gnome-cd and grip must be using my proxy because I'm behind a
firewall and it wouldn't get any data otherwise. It must be using my
http_proxy environment variable, since I did not set up the proxy
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
This still happens in FC3. From browsing the source code for cddb-slave2, it
looks like cddb-slave2 is using parts of the gnet library, so I doubt that it
will even try to use the http proxy.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.
Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only. Please install a still supported version and retest. If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version. Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy. Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
