Description Simon Falvey 2002-03-21 11:03:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311

Description of problem:
Since Yahoo! updated their stock quote page format the existing gtik2 applet
just displays "No data available or properties not set". The Redhat rpm package
needs refreshing from the gtik2 cvs archive which has been fixed to cope with
the new Yahoo page format.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run the stock ticker applet
2.There is not step 2

Actual Results:  Displays "No data available or properties not set"

Expected Results:  It should display the stock quotes instead

Additional info: gtik main page says new version is available which fixes the
problem. http://www.dread.net/gtik/main.html

I applied the relevant patch from CVS - wow this is fragile though. gtik will
break anytime Yahoo changes that web page. Oh well, works for now I guess...
