The downloads are working again. Many thanks!
As I have begun to use the program more often, I have noticed one other small bug: the program quits after refreshing the feeds (selecting the refresh button).
I'm sure some would like to be able to specify the directory where it stores feeds/podcasts, but I was able to do this by creating a symbolic link from the /home/zaurus/Corsair/shows to my SD card.

This is a VERY promising program (certainly the best RSS reader I've tried on the Zaurus, although admittedly that isn't saying a whole lot...) It's incredibly fast and will actually open links in Opera for me and not NetFront (presumably because I've set mail links to open in Opera).

It seems like it won't read any feed that doesn't end in .xml though. I have some that end in .php and .html and they just won't load. And of course it could use a fair amount of work in the GUI department. But I'd definitely like to see more.

jagkra: I will look into the issue of the program dying after you hit refresh.

icruise: Can you post some example feeds that don't work for you?

Also, on the topic of default browser and directory location, there are hooks in the code to support specification of these items in a config file, but the config file has not been implemented yet.

Thanks and keep the bug reports coming...

I haven't tried that many yet, but here are a couple:

http://www.the-gadgeteer.com/rss.php
http://www.akihabaranews.com/en/rss.html

Edit: I take it back -- these are both working now. I'm not sure why, though, because these two sites wouldn't work earlier even though I was able to add several other sites without problems.

The podcast for Nightline, which I posted earlier doesn't work. It appears to download the file, but no file is saved in the /home/zaurus/Corsair/shows directory.

icruise: I was able to open the files you posted, also.

jagkra: I was not able to replicate your first issue (corsair quits on refresh). If you could post or message me your entire feeds.opml file, I might be able to replicate it.

I was able to replicate your second issue - the enclosure in that RSS feed has a "?" in the file name. I will post a fix when I figure out how to fix it.

I can't seem to get it to load these two feeds:

http://arstechnica.com/etc/rdf/ars.rdf

http://macslash.org/macslash.rdf

I also wish that you could open a particular news item by selecting it with the stylus. As it is now, tapping on it once will just select it and double-tapping doesn't seem to have any effect. I get a "connecting to" message at the bottom of the screen and the item's icon changes to an "audio" icon, but nothing happens. In order to open the item I have to press enter on the keyboard or press the tiny little "information" button on the left-hand side of the screen.

I'm also getting the "quit on refresh" problem.

icruise: The mac site worked for me after a 2nd try. ArsTechnica is a definite problem - looks like it may be the number of redirects it uses. If you want a quick work-around, use this URL instead:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/arstechnica/BAaf

jagkra sent me an opml file that exits on reload. That should help me debug this beast.

Thanks to both of you.

Here is a new corsair build that should address all bugs reported to-date on this thread. Specifically:

1. Redirects should work. The arstechnica site, for example, works.

2. The crash-on-refresh bug should be fixed.

3. Podcasts with "?" in them should be saved correctly. The nightline podcast, for example, works.

4. Double-tapping on a news item that is a text post, not a podcast, will now display the text of that item rather than trying to download and play it.

Thanks for testing, and please post to this thread if you find bugs. If you find a bug with a particular feed, please post the feed URL.
Attached File(s)

Misterix, is your patch in the oe repository? Or did you sent it to tiny ogre? It would be nice to have also a release for QT (opie).

I've been emailing all changes to tiny ogre. He said he was going to incorporate them in his next release.

Great job! This makes the program quite a bit more usable. I think the main thing we need now is the ability to sort feeds in folders.

We also need source to be available to fetch so anyone can build it.

Currently OE has recipe for corsair 0.2.0 but sources are fetched from CVS (which is slow on sf.net).
