I can confirm the same results using gnome-applets-2.14.1-1.fc5.1


Comment 3 C.M. Connelly 2007-03-06 20:04:40 UTC
Also a problem with RHEL 4 (and probably 3).

Comment 4 clifford snow 2007-05-14 03:31:57 UTC
I reported this to as bug #412823 on Feb. 2, 2007. 
The correct zone for Seattle, WA is WAZ508.  I verified the zone with NOAA in

In file /usr/share/gnome-applets/gweather/Locations.xml
The seattle <zone> should be changed to WAZ508 to fix the forecast.

This same bug is in FC6 and F7 test 4 as well.

Adding to update tracker since this one is trivial to fix.  Thanks for doing the
ground work, Clifford.

Comment 6 clifford snow 2007-11-20 21:43:29 UTC
This is still a bug in FC8.  I will attached an updated Locations.xml with the
Seattle fix included.

Comment 7 clifford snow 2007-11-20 21:47:24 UTC
Created attachment 265411 [details]
Locations.xml contains data for the gnome weather applet

Updated /usr/share/gnome-applets/gweather/Locations.xml with the correct
Seattle, WA zone information which provides the weather forecast.

Comment 8 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-03-18 18:34:31 UTC

We no longer support Fedora Core 5 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state.  I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
 If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
