Description Steve Rigler 2004-02-16 08:09:19 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
When using KDE for the desktop environment and the user's home
directory is mounted via NFS, any changes to the Desktop (eg putting a
file on the desktop, etc) cause the desktop icons to blink every 5
seconds or so.  This doesn't happen with Gnome, and it doesn't happen
when the home directory is on a local disk.  Device icons and icon
previews are turned off.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Home directory mounted via NFS
2. Use KDE for desktop environment
3. Create a file on the desktop (echo "garbage" > ~/Desktop/garbage.txt)


Actual Results:  Icons will blink every 5 seconds or so

Expected Results:  Icons should not blink

Has anyone had a chance to confirm this?
Comment 2 Steve Rigler 2004-05-04 19:33:41 EDT
I can confirm that this is also a problem RHEL 3 (tested i386 version
of ES).

Comment 3 Ngo Than 2006-05-13 17:41:57 EDT
