Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 456879
Weather clock applet shows wrong temperature for The Netherlands / Twenthe
Last modified: 2009-01-10 10:28:50 EST
Description of problem:
Temperature is invariably reported as 8 deg. C or 46 deg. F.
Weather report (clouds, sun etc.) seem to be approximately correct.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Weather Report 2.22.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-mouse on Clock or Weather report.
4. Select Netherlands/Twenthe
8 deg. C or 46 deg. F. depending on temperature unit setting.
Actual temperature (currently 25 - 30 deg. C., about 80 deg. F.)
Netherlands/Twenthe is not in the locations list with:
No matches are found with:
fgrep -i Twenthe /usr/share/libgweather/*.xml
Was Twenthe removed after this bug was reported?
It indeed appears the location has been dropped from the locations list, probably in version 2.23.91. The only reference I could find stated:
"Drop a lot of cities that are not useful in this database"
It appears that the airport Twenthe which used to be a military airport but the military part was closed some years ago, and is no longer supported by libgweather (probably does not have its weather station operational anymore). All other weather sources in The Netherlands are military or civilian airports as well.
I'm closing this bug now since it cannot be fixed anymore.
