The plugin no longer works it seems because the script to pull all data (except for the radar image) for a location is going to a url that has been deactivated. (http://www.msnbc.com/m/chnk/d/weather_d_src.asp?acid=). I am not sure if this fails under ebuilds or back to the original MythTV folks who developed the plugin. Since it calls the same functions, this also affects www-apps/mythweb
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select any location in the Weather Settings
2. Access Weather plugin from main menu
Error messages displayed in place of data
Display correct data for selected location
I found an existing ticket for this at mythtv.org. Ticket # 3327
Would it be possible to have the ebuild include the patch from the ticket?
CCing a MythTV upstream developer
Looks like we need to switch to the new mythweather revamp branch.
Here's some details.
At the bottom of the page it links to a sandbox page with some very nice screenshots of it's features.
Any chance of an ebuild for this ???
from statements by upstream, its not ready for use or ready to be built against 0.20.
So for now, it looks like no.
so for 0.20.2 upstream is disabling mythweather and marking it as broken.
<gbee> not in a fit state for a backport, suppose in a couple or weeks, maybe less it might be usable enough that packagers could backport it themselves - not sure Chutt would want it backported it to -fixes though
<gbee> assuming you are talking about mythweather and not some other fix that I was supposed to be backporting
<Cardoe> yes, mythweather
<Chutt> that's too big for a backport
So there you have it, MythWeather will not be fixed or working in 0.20.x, as such it's been masked.
