WebDAV support not functional?
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:00:15 EST
Description of Problem:
Entering a DAV-enabled URL in the location bar does not present (or allow
switching to) a WebDAV view of the URL, but simply does a GET on the location
and the response displays the response as text. I thought previously Nautilus
would give a DAV view by default; at least, it would at least allow changing to
"View as Icons" to give the DAV folder listing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Nautilus
2. Enter http://test.webdav.org/dav/
No WebDAV view given or available
WebDAV folder view.
it's indeed supposed to work.
That address doesn't work for me either, but http://idisk.mac.com/tigert/Public
does, and so does http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn. Don't know what is causing
the first one to fail, but i don't know much about webdav.
The problem with http://test.webdav.org/dav/ is that the trailing slash from the
URL is getting stripped in the PROPFIND request made by gnome-vfs, which is not
correct; a PROPFIND request on a collection (aka folder) should always have a
trailing slash in the request-uri.
The PROPFIND on http://test.webdav.org/dav gets a 30x redirect to /dav/; the
redirect is followed, but with a GET request.
(Some servers respond to the PROPFIND-without-trailing-slash fine, though)
I filed this bug upstream:
Defering this bug until it's fixed upstream.
Fixed upstream now. Will be in the next version.
I'm closing this now so i won't forget it, but it'll be fixed when
gnome-vfs2 2.5.9 builds.
