Nautilus will not run
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
Nautilus crashes at login and will not run when started manually, either.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version shipped w/FC2 (gnome-2.6).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2
2. Boot system
3. Log-in (using Gnome for the desktop)
Nautilus crashes w/a dialog reporting so. The choices presented are
to try to restart the app or generate a bug report for the
"developers". However, I can only click on a "Restart Application"
button and a "Cancel" button. There is no way provided to generate a
There is root window desktop, however the taskbar runs just fine.
When I try to use a nautilus window (for file system surfing), it also
fails in the same manner.
Nautilus in the root window. Nautilus as a file browsing window.
There is nothing in the logs to be of assistance.
I was able to get nautilus to produce this syslog message:
Jul 12 01:24:40 valkyrie kernel: nautilus: segfault at
00000002fffffffe rip 0000003a82d2d22b rsp 0000007fbfffeba0 error 4
That is it. Only the one message each time I try to run it.

After further research, I found this in the upstream bugzilla for Gnome:
However, as I started to edit the spec file for ORBit-0.5.17 to add

Lamont, thanks for tracking the patch down and testing it out - very
helpful. I'll try and get an FC2 update out witht the fix soon.

Actual patch which was committed upstream - includes a union alignment fix too
ORBit2-2.10.0-4 has been pushed to FC2 updates with the fix. A mail
should hit fedora-announce-list soon with the details.
This update can be downloaded from:
Oh, and 2.10.0-5 in rawhide has the fix too.
This seems to fix also bug #123066; at least for me.
