Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 35364
Gnome Weather no longer shows temperature
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:32:37 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-0.1.40 i686; Nav)
In both the panel applet and the popup window, the temperature is not
shown. I know the temperature is available because other machines using Red
Hat 7.0 do display the temperature.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add Gnome Weather to your Gnome Panel
2. Select Raleigh-Durham as your area
3. Note that the temperature is not shown.
Actual Results: Temperature does not show, even when I try updating it.
Expected Results: The temperature should be shown in both the applet on
the panel and in the popup window you get when double-clicking the applet.
As I said before, this problem does not show up in Red Hat 7.0 with or
without HelixCode^WXimian Gnome.
I'm using gnome-applets-1.2.4-3. This is the most up-to-date version in
public rawhide at this time.
This would *appear* to be a breakage in parsing of the METAR output, but
I'm not sure. Sometimes the temperature shows up blank, other times as --.
Regardless, no temperature shows no matter what city I chose.
Still true in 7.2?
gweather seems to have broken entirely recently, due to changes in whatever
server it uses.
I haven't seen it in the last couple of days, so this particular bug has
apparently gone away.
closing as fixed then. :-)
