Description Trevor Hemsley 2011-09-09 03:35:19 UTC
Description of problem:
Cover Art does not download

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable EPEL-5 repo 
2. yum install amarok
3. Go to Tools -> Cover Manager
4. Expect to see some cover art downloaded
Actual results:
Nothing happens. Using tcpdump I can see a bad request from amazon.com coming back.

Expected results:
Covers should be downloaded

Additional info:
The spec file from the source package contains a patch102 amarok-1.4.10-coverfetcher.patch but this is never applied during the build. Downloading the source RPM and rebuilding it with patch102 applied right after patch2 and 3 produces a version of amarok that goes to last.fm for its covers rather than to Amazon.

Looks like bug 523071 was closed without testing to see if the problem was actually fixed - only half a fix was done! The patch was built but never applied.
