Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1249101
Use timeout in abrt-console-notification.sh
Last modified: 2017-09-09 13:17:13 EDT
Description of problem:
abrt-console-notification tries to run "abrt-cli status" on every login. If there is an ".lock" symlink in one of the problem directories (the directory is locked), abrt-cli waits until the locked directory is unlocked.
This causes users must wait until the abrt-dbus kills the abrt-cli. It takes about ~50 seconds which is a lot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create .lock symlink in one of the problem directories
"# ln -sf $PROBLEM_DIRECTORY/.lock "
2. Run "$ sh -l -i -c "echo test" "
abrt-cli status runs until the abrt-dbus's timeout is reached.
abrt-console-notification kills the abrt-cli after abrt-console-notification's timeout is reached (10 seconds) and prints a message about what happened.
This is easy fix and this commit fixes the issue on Fedora:
