Description of problem:
i have a folder in the home partition called "zip750". it has 640
items in 330.5MB.
if i try to copy this folder with nautilus to my firewire zip750 drive
i get IO errors on random files. retrying on the file does nothing.
there does not seem to be any pattern to determine which file the IO
error occurs on; it changes with each copy.
i know this problem is limited to nautilus because using bash:
[root@markf78 zip750]# pwd
[root@markf78 zip750]# cp -r /home/zip750/* .
[root@markf78 zip750]# cd ..
[root@markf78 zip]# ls -l
drwx------ 2 root root 16384 Jun 8 13:59 lost+found
drwxr-xr-x 18 root root 4096 Jun 8 14:04 zip750
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir /home/zip750
2. store roughly 330MB of files and folders in that folder
3. try and copy to a firewire zip750 drive
Hmm. I don't have a firewire drive. No idea how to debug this...
i believe this has been fixed in FC3... will try to test tommorrow
