Description of problem:
The old gtcd had the capability of getting the cddb info over a proxy
using the http protocol (port 80). But with the new gnome-cd 
applichation I am not able to access the CDDB database over the proxy
(perhaps just the right config file is missing?!)

I read something of CCDBSlave2 is responsible for this, is there some
way to fix this?!?!

And it would be great if the gnome-cd apps would be able to display the
cddb transfer data (like gtcd). This would improve the error finding procedure!

(b.t.w. grip still works with cddb so it's not uppon the network...)

l.g. alex

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert a Audio CD...
2.See what happens :-(

Actual Results:  no cddb info

Expected Results:  cddb info

Can't you set the proxy under Preferences->Network Proxy?

Feature/UI change requests for gnome-cd should really go to bugzilla.gnome.org, 
as we wouldn't usually change the UI of an app on the Red Hat level.

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2003-01-29 21:25:17 UTC
The proxy setting in the Preferences->Network Proxy has already been set!
Also the Extra->Preferences->CDDB with select other server and set 
hostname to freedb.freedb.org and port 80 (this settings work with grip...)

...but nothing happens :-((

This may be fixed in Phoebe beta, need to verify.

Comment 4 Colin Walters 2004-09-27 19:09:41 UTC
Can you still reproduce this with a newer release like in FC2?
