Comment 2 Manuel Moreno 2004-05-01 11:21:29 EDT
I have been able to run nautilus...

Digging into gentoo lists it seems to be a hard to track problem
which possibly involves glibc and/or nptl ... and only shows on
x86_64 architecture.

There is a workaround that seems to work (at least it works for me)
you have to edit /etc/fstab and comment out lines for floppy, cdrom,
etc... until you get nautilus to run.

Here (attached) is my /etc/fstab that makes it run well.

The funny thing is that if I change the last line from

/dev/fd0        /mnt/floppy     auto    noauto          0 0


/dev/fd0        /mnt/floppy     auto    noauto,owner          0 0

then nautilus crashes again! ;-/

I also changed this ... 

Maybe this is also needed

Forgot to say, my hardware is AMD64 processor
Asus k8v de luxe motherboard and several pata/sata disks 1,2 Gb RAM

P.S. I was fed up from using KDE (which otos works flawlessly...)

Does anyone have a backtrace of the crash (with symbols)?
