Description mig-o 2001-11-06 10:52:48 UTC
(*** This bug was imported into bugs.kde.org ***)

Package:           kio-http
Version:           3.0 (using KDE 2.2.1 )
Severity:          normal
Installed from:    Debian Package 4:2.2.1-14 (testing/unstable)
Compiler:          gcc version 2.95.4 20011006 (Debian prerelease)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.4.6
OS/Compiler notes: 

I try to use the http-post method to upload files onto my server.
With konqueror 5 MB files are no problem but a linux kernel with 21MB could not be sent.

I window pops up aftrer pressing the Submit-Button and tells ma that the <URL of my site> - Process has terminated unexpected.
Before my harddisk is running a few seconds. (There's enough space for evtl. done swapping on my disk).

OK Opera fails on smaller sizes but IE does this very well.

Thanks for fixing this. Hope the bug is sent to the korrect package.

Konqueror should not try to send the whole file in one chunk to the http-slave,
but stream it.

KDE 3.2.3 konqueror has _STILL_ this bug. Is this unfixable? Its a very annoying bug. If I try to upload huge files all my memory is consumed and my system gets very slow. The upload bar also stalls and doesn't show the actualy percentage of uploaded data.
Comment 5 Dawit Alemayehu 2004-08-06 02:43:55 UTC
Yes, the fix for this is not trivial. It affects far too many components that require a lot of effort to fix. I already had a patch that took care of most of the problem, but after a long discussion it was decided that it needs to be improved a bit. I will dust it off once the freeze is over and see if it would be possible to get this fixed for one of those 3.3.x releases. Otherwise, it will have to wait for KDE 4.x. Sorry for the long delay...

I just want to inform you that I have the same problem even in KDE 3.5.2. I am using a TWiki (http://twiki.org/) and it was impossible to upload a CD image with konqueror. Konqueror instantly consumed 100% CPU and around 2 Gig RAM and just seemed to hang. After switching to Firefox everything worked like expected...

Git commit 01db8ec6e9934a13ed8025949dab9dd43010bf53 by Dawit Alemayehu.
Committed on 13/02/2011 at 02:59.
Pushed by adawit into branch 'master'.

Overloaded the KIO::http_post and KIO::storedHttpPost APIs with ones that
accept a QIODevice parameter instead of a QByteArray for the data source.
See http://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/100516/ for the details.
