Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 282331
Blam doesn't open links with commas correctly.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:15 EST
Description of problem:
Some RSS feeds, e.g. http://rss.gazeta.pl/pub/rss/wiadomosci.xml have story
links with commas in them. When opening these in blam, the commas are HTML
character encoded and so the links don't open correctly. The links work
correctly when put directly into the browser.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add new feed http://rss.gazeta.pl/pub/rss/wiadomosci.xml
3. try to open any story
4. story doesn't open
5. replace %2c with , in page (multiple times)
6. story opens
page opens after stage 6
page opens after stage 4
Thanks for your bug report; and eureka, this might be easier to solve than I had
thought at first. It appears to be a missing System.Web.HttpUtility library:
** (Blam:17072): WARNING **: Missing method HtmlDecode in assembly
/usr/lib/blam/blam.exe, type System.Web.HttpUtility
Installing the mono-web package seems to fix this issue for me. Can you please
try this and let me know if it also fixes the issue for you? If so, I'll add
this to the spec file as a runtime dependency.
Actually, I'm going to add the mono-web dependency for bug 275561, so hopefully
it should fix this issue at the same time. I'll push this through the build
I have mono-web-1.2.3-3.fc7 installed and still see the problem. I did this to
fix my other bug report (bug #275561). I also reported the same problem as bug
#282931 against liferea.
blam-1.8.3-6.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
