Description

When you build audacious-plugins without Neon support, LyricWiki stops working but doesn't show any error messages.

Either
1) Don't allow building LyricWiki without libneon
or
2) LyricWiki should always show an error message "LyricWiki requires Neon support built-in" (in case neon support is not available)

History

#1 Updated by Ariadne Conill about 8 years ago

not true, the lyricwiki plugin depends on any VFS provider which provides an http URI scheme. if you were to provide an alternative http plugin, it would work.

lyricwiki plugin does not use libneon directly.

#2 Updated by Artem S. Tashkinov about 8 years ago

At least is it possible to update LyricWiki plugin so that it spitted an error saying no HTTP providers are compiled in, thus it cannot fetch remote data?

No, such details are hidden from plugins. All LyricWiki knows is whether vfs_fopen() succeeded or failed.
