Totally bizarro problem [Nov. 19th, 2003|06:23 am]

Before I rebooted a few minutes ago, I was able to get LogJam to login without a proxy. Now, after the reboot, and changing absolutely nothing else, attempts to login without a proxy get a "cURL error: socket error: 61". If I use a proxy server (thankfully, I happen to have handy) I am able to login with no trouble.

I'm able to get pings to www.livejournal.com no problem, so it's not something really boneheaded like my system forgetting its default gateway. I tried deinstalling, recompiling, and reinstalling LogJam (suspecting a corrupt binary) with no success.

Could it be that you have or had a proxy set up in your environment? curl honors those (I don't remember if they're called http_proxy or HTTP_PROXY).

Also note the "dump network requests to stdout" box in Prefs > Debug.

Maybe that is it. I feel pretty dumb now...

It's okay, you made up for it with the title of the post, which immediately made me wonder what Sephiroth was doing in your logjam or vice versa.

Don't :)

This isn't so obvious, because LogJam is using a proxy when the proxy setting in the GUI is off.

whoa, is this a new curl feature? i seem to recall getting a bug report that said curl *didn't* honor http_proxy...

It's not new. It may have stopped working at some point because of a bug, but I remember I found it happenning once and was a bit surprised that it did. (I may have asked your opinion over whether to override the environment even? It was long ago though.)
