Description Chris Foote 2007-01-22 02:04:55 EST
Description of problem:
wget fails to retrieve files from FTP servers with the --mirror
option.  It occurs on authenticated FTP sites and anonymous ones, with
or without a trailing directory path.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
wget.i386 1.10.2-3.3.fc5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget -d --mirror ftp://filearena.net/pub/ubcd/3.4/

Actual results:
Successfully logs in, gets a directory listing, stores it in Unix 'ls -l'
format, but does not retrieve any of the files.

Expected results:
Should download files and continue process for subdirectories recursively.

Additional info:
Independant of type of FTP server (only Unix based ones were tried, however).

Comment 2 Chris Foote 2007-01-22 02:09:33 EST
I can confirm it is also buggy on Fedora Core 6 (pkg:wget-1.10.2-8.fc6.1).
Comment 3 Steve Malenfant 2007-01-22 11:13:45 EST
I confirm this problem as well, this has happened in the last wget-1.10.2-8
only, so on of the fixes resulting in this recursive feature to not work anymore
in FTP mode.

- fix bugzilla #218211
- fix bugzilla #186195
- fix bugzilla #205723

Needs fixed please.  Elevate priority.
Comment 4 Karsten Hopp 2007-02-12 08:30:13 EST
can you please test wget-1.10.2-15 from rawhide and reopen if this bug still
exists ?
Comment 5 Steve Malenfant 2007-02-12 09:21:42 EST
I'm sorry, but where is rawhide?  The only version I could find is wget-1.10.2-
14.fc2 from February 5th 2006.  Also I couldn't install it because I couldn't 
find the dependency rtld(GNU_HASH).
Comment 6 Karsten Hopp 2007-02-12 09:50:50 EST
There's currently a problem with the rawhide build scripts, a new tree will be
published when that's resolved. As for the dependency problems: get the SRPM
and run rpmbuild --rebuilt SRPM-filename. This takes care of the dependencies
and rebuilds the package with the libraries on your system.
Comment 7 Mike Grant 2007-02-14 10:06:00 EST
I can confirm this fixes it for me on FC6 - tested with "wget -r -l2 -P/tmp
ftp://wuarchive.wustl.edu/" from the wget man page.  With wget-1.10.2-8 this
retrieves the .listing and exits, with wget-1.10.2-15 it downloads the other
files too.
Comment 8 Steve Malenfant 2007-02-14 10:57:34 EST
Tried on FC4 and FC5 and worked fine after re-compiling 1.10.2-15.
