Description Dave Shield 2003-07-16 10:15:16 UTC
Description of problem:
When playing CDs via kscd, it never retrieves the track listings from
the freedb.freedb.org servers (or mirrors) via either HTTP or CDDBP
Checking the DiscID on the FreeDB web interface, confirms that the
disc is known.

Kscd also prints a number of info & error messages, of which this
looks possibly the most relevalt
     CDTEXT ERROR: READ_TOC(0x43) with format code 0x05 not implemented
     or broken. ret = -1!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.1-4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert CD
2. Run kscd
Actual results:
"No matching freedb entry found"

Expected results:
Track listing details.

Additional info:
Tried with
   freedb.freedb.org http 80 /~cddb/cddb.cgi
   freedb.freedb.org cddbp 8880
   uk.freedb.org cddbp 8880

Initial connection did return a full list of mirrors, so network
connectivity seems OK.   It's just querying the database that fails.

This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core 
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in 
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with 
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may 
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it 
back to NEW state.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-10-18 18:18:21 UTC
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.

Closing as CANTFIX.
