Description of problem:
I'm running fc2 with samba 3.0.3-5 installed.
I mounted a FAT32 share on a Windows machine (both Win98SE and Win2k)
using "smbmount //winbox/share /mountpoint"
Using Nautilus, I can navigate to the mountpoint and see the files on
When I drag-and-drop a file to the window of the mountpoint, I get the
following error box:
The application "nautilus" has quit unexpectedly. You can inform
the developers of what happened to help them fix it. Or you can
restart the application right now.
When I hit the "restart button" the nautilus windows close. When I
restart nautilus and navigate to the mountpoint, the file I
dragged-and-dropped previously is there.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount remote share with smbmount
2. Open nautilus, navigate to the mountpoint
3. Drag-and-drop a file to the window opened at the mountpoint
Actual Results: I get the following error box:
The application "nautilus" has quit unexpectedly. You can inform the
developers of what happened to help them fix it. Or you can restart
the application right now.
Expected Results: No error - nautilus should not quit unexpectedly
I should clarify - the crash occurs when I drop-and-drag a file from a
window for one remote share to a window for another remote share:
-- I mounted 2 different remote shares with smbmount.
-- I opened a nautilus window for each mountpoint
-- I try to drag-and-drop a file from one share to the other
I just tried dragging-and-dropping a local file to either share and
Any chance you could install the debuginfo packages for gnome-vfs2 and
nautilus and get a backtrace of the crash from gdb?
I tested this on fc3test3, and it worked for me. Can you retry with
fc3test3 or later and see if you still get this?
No response from reporter for a year and a half after a request. Works for me
on more recently releases. Going to assume that it was fixed in FC3, and since
FC2 is Fedora Legacy now (and this isn't security), closing.
