Description of problem:
The stock ticker applet that is part of the Linux 7.1 delux workstation (boxed)
release no longer works. It is returning "No data available or properties not
set" in the ticker output. This used to work fine and this was also report 6
months ago and I have not received a solution.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose applets
2. Choose networks

5. Enter a valid stock ticker name
7. Observe "No data available...." message in ticker
Actual Results: I observed "No data available...." message in ticker
Expected Results: I expected to see the value of the stock scroll by like it

Those support contracts are normally in a business rather than individual price
I'm really do not want to go and purchase a new release of Linux. If it is my
only choice, then I will. Isn't it posible to simply get the lastest patched
version of the Stock Ticker applet without reloading the entire OS. Other Unix
vendors have patch kits available to fix buds in the existing releases of their
Our equivalent product to other UNIX flavors is Red Hat Linux Advanced Server,
which does come with more support. The retail box product is an inexpensive
product that comes with installation support only (or Apache configuration

to purchase a higher level of support and contact our support or client
engineering divisions. Bugzilla is a task tracker for engineers, not a support
Note that you can also download the new release free of charge, you need not
