Description naidov13 2001-09-28 09:23:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
When I click on the 'File Manager' menu icon or the 'Home' directory icon, 
file manager tries to load but is unable to.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
2.In menu, click on  'File Manager'

Actual Results:  The file manager window opens, and closes immediately and 
this happens constantly in the Gnome session. I am able to open other 
windows in Gnome but I am unable to do any tasks because the file manager 
window overlaps other windows. 

Expected Results:  The file manager should have opened a window, and 
remain open until closed, showing files and directories in the filesystem.

Additional info:

Without starting file manager, Gnome works fine and there are no problems 
until I try to access files via file manager. When I switch to the KDE 
interface, there are no problems. However, I prefer the Gnome interface 
and would appreciate any help. I never experienced this problem in RH7.0

I opened a terminal window & typed 'gmc' but the exact same thing happens.

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2001-10-21 20:51:56 UTC
I have the same problem - message:
Application "gmc", process (7089) has crashed due to a fatal error. 
(Segmentation fault)

Moving away from gmc, no active development on it anymore.
