Description Kyrre Ness Sjøbæk 2004-02-21 21:07:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/7.21 (X11; Linux i686; U)  [en]

Description of problem:
(not shure if this is the rigth place to file the bug - if not, 
please move it)

When I enter a folder (with nautilus) which contains divX video 
files, i can see the cpu meter maxes out at 100%, and a short look 
with "top" shows that a prosess named gst-register is to blame. when 
i kill it, it goes back to normal (not showing up in top)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gstreamer-tools-0.6.4-0.1 gstreamer-0.6.4-0.1 gstreamer-plugins-0.6.

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
seen it on several macines. Can't tell if its only occuring on divx 
video. I have installed mplayer, and said that .avi files should be 
opened with gmplayer

Actual Results:  cpu maxes at 100% until prosess is killed

Expected Results:  maybe not trying to make a thumbnail of .avi 
files? (if this is what it tries to do)

This is bizarre.  gst-register should only be run by the
post-installation script of the rpm package.  

Can you really reproduce this every time you enter a folder in
nautilus containing divx video?  Are you sure it's gst-register?

Comment 2 Kyrre Ness Sjøbæk 2004-03-30 10:00:31 UTC
I was able to reproduce every time it on my laptop. Going to check if
the bug's still there.

Yes, I am shure it was gst-register, as I checked with top. It looked
like it tried to index the folder.

Do you have any custom RPMs installed or is this all FC1?

Comment 4 Kyrre Ness Sjøbæk 2004-04-02 16:34:11 UTC
Some of my RPM's is from freshrpm's (as I have used this as a way to
get faster download speeds (borowing network uplink from friends and
my school - I use ISDN at home, plus up2date is really buggy. Yes, i
know I can use YUM directly, but...) and ability to use synaptic), and
maybee som packages from livna (mp3-patched rhytmbox - didn't work.
Guess these are replaced with something from freshrpms by now.), pluss
some various sources (general software downloaded from the net. I
honestly don't remember everything).

Is there some log file etc. you would be interested in looking at? I
might even be able to forward the ssh port for you. Again, i'm on an
ISDN uplink and it will not be possible for me to fix that shell-thing
during the next few days (easter).

When checking, i see that the bug has mysteriously gone away (as far
as I can see - not any extensive testing done, but the bug was really
easily reproduced), and everything now works great.

If it occurs again then please reopen the bug.
