Description Jim Schneider 2009-04-30 15:24:09 UTC
Description of problem:
Attempting to read a feed from an HTTPS URL logs an error message of "Error 500 while updating feed".  A debugging print statement added to /usr/lib/python2.4/site_package/planet/__init__.py to see the actual exception being returned from the feed parser gave the error message:

 ssl() argument 1 must be _socket.socket, not _socketobject

Googling for that exact phrase provided this link: http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-list/2005-May/323170.html

The article at this link explains that the culprit is the timeoutsocket library.  Removing the files matching /usr/lib/python2.4/site_package/planet/timeoutsocket.py* fixed the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.0-3.el5

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure planet to aggregate a feed from an HTTPS source.
  
Actual results:
Fails to connect with a type mismatch exception.

Expected results:
Reads the feed (or fails to connect for some other reason).

Comment 1 Jim Schneider 2009-04-30 15:33:20 UTC
Looks like I relied on memory, when I should have relied on cut and paste.  The path "/usr/lib/python2.4/site_package/planet" should be "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/planet".  I apologize for the confusion.

Comment 2 Richard Dawe 2009-05-08 20:55:39 UTC
Thanks for reporting the bug.

Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to look at this bug for at least 2 weeks.

Comment 4 Richard Dawe 2009-06-06 12:57:54 UTC
Please note that I've just orphaned this package. There's hopefully someone lined up who is interested in maintaining it, and fixing this issue.

Comment 6 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-08-30 17:47:42 UTC
Both links in this BZ are 404, can you still reproduce this?

Comment 7 Alexander Koenig 2015-01-11 11:19:18 UTC
HTTPS feeds are still broken with planet-2.0-19.fc21.noarch (fails on https://terminatorX.org/feed/ with our local installation). The problem is that 'timeoutsocket.py' is no longer compatible with current python sockets, however as the timeout feature is not even being used by planet it is safe to just remove timeoutsocket.py from the sources and HTTPS feeds work without problems again.

Comment 8 Gwyn Ciesla 2015-01-12 16:27:35 UTC
Please test the rawhide build.  If it's good I'll build it everywhere.

Comment 9 Alexander Koenig 2015-01-12 20:04:01 UTC
Excellent, package installs without issues and planet handles http and https feeds without issues again (checked with cleared caches, too). Thanks!

Excellent, thanks!  Updates on their way.
