Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 476617
Cannot add new podcast in rhythmbox (when via ssh)
Last modified: 2010-06-28 06:57:13 EDT
When I try to add a podcast using the GUI in rhythmbox-0.11.6-19.r6096.fc11.x86_64, I get a dialog box with the message:
Error in podcast
There was a problem adding this podcast: Unable to parse the feed contents. Please verify the URL: http://www.wbur.org/listen/podcasts/morningedition.xml. Would you like to add the podcast feed anyway?
So far I've tried:
Both of these are working fine with rhythmbox-0.11.6-2.fc9.i386 but not with the newer version.
Works fine here, which version of totem-pl-parser is installed on your machine?
Both should work. What's the output of "rhythmbox -d podcast" when reproducing the problem?
Created attachment 327351 [details]
output of "rhythmbox -d podcast" from session trying to add http://www.wbur.org/listen/podcasts/morningedition.xml
Still a problem with rhythmbox-0.11.6-21.r6096.fc11.x86_64.
Works fine here with rhythmbox-0.11.6-23.r6096.fc11.i386
Aha, once again this only happens when I start rhythmbox from a remote session ("ssh -Y").
that explains it. ssh -Y doesn't forward dbus, only X, so quite a few things won't work in that situation.
It occurred to me that the user might be sshing in from a heterogeneous desktop (Windows, Mac, non-Fedora *nix, etc.). So this should probably work even in the absence of a dbus connection from the foreign machine.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I have same problem in F10 with local session.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
