I was wondering if others have experienced this issue. We did not see it with 2.6.5 on these servers.
In admin, when defining the page layout and contents,
select: widget/google from the pull-down (not portal) Select (for example) News category and MSNBC.com Receive: Error while retreiving Widget: http://rss.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032091/device/rss/rss.xml This happens with most of the RSS feeds; however, if you select Technology and Current Moon Phase, that one works fine.
The only other change we are aware of is the /etc/conf.d/httpd has been changed so traffic on port 80 (not 8080) goes to JBOSS. I have been told that should not affect this.
