Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 410801
elinks shows garbage for many, but not all, RH bugzilla bugs
Last modified: 2008-02-21 08:38:57 EST
Most probably since RH bugzilla added gzip compression some bugs show up
complete garbage in all elinks versions I (and dkl) have tried (some FC5ish
running on RHEL3, F7, F8).
or 407281 or 406931 show this, while e.g. 405961 doesn't exhibit this problem.
If I \ to view page source, it always starts as valid HTML, but from some point
(in one case e.g. 7314 bytes) it contains till the end random bytes.
It occurs even with the latest upstream GIT snapshot. I will try to find out
where is the problem.
Just a bit more informations: Garbage is returned for Transfer-Encoding: chunked
and Content-Encoding: gzip . First chunk is ok, but rest is corrupted.
Problem was recently fixed by upstream in unstable 0.12
(http://elinks.or.cz/download/elinks-current-unstable.tar.bz2) GIT branch. Will
try to backport the fix to Fedora (with elinks 0.11.4rc0).
Backported and built as elinks-0.11.4-0.3.rc0.fc9. Seems to fix the problem
properly, closing RAWHIDE, feel free to reopen the bug or leave a comment if it
doesn't solve your issue.
