Description Rodger Wang 2004-09-28 10:32:14 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040926

Description of problem:
FC3T2 can correctly mount my USB external disk's 2 partitions(FAT32),
and I can use CLI and other GUI applications to access the whole disk
contents without any problem. But, Nautilus can only open the top
level directory, not any further. I always got the error message
'openning xxx, you can stop this operation by clicking cancel.'.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug in the USB external HD
2. boot the system into GNOME 2.8
3. there are two USB disk icons on the desktop
4. double-click on one of them to open the top level directory list
5. double-click on any of the sub-directoy icons

Actual Results:  the sub-directory won't be opened. Message 'openning
xxx, you can stop this operation by clicking cancel.' will show after
a couple of seconds

Expected Results:  it should open a new directory window to show
sub-directory content

Can you get an strace of when this happens?
Comment 2 Rodger Wang 2004-09-29 06:22:52 EDT
I am not an Linux expert. Can you tell me the whole command?
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2004-09-29 08:06:58 EDT
remove nautilus from the session (so it doesn't restart), kill it, and
then run "strace -o nautilus.log -tt -f nautilus", navigate to the
disk where it hangs, and attach nautilus.log here.

bug 129966 seems very similar, but on fc2 due to a kernel upgrade, so
this might be kernel related.
Comment 5 Don Hardaway 2004-10-01 06:25:53 EDT
This is exactly my problem also--I am bug 129966.
Comment 6 Don Hardaway 2004-10-01 06:58:15 EDT
I have the strace you requested but it will not let me attached it. It
says it is too big.  What do you want me to do??
Comment 7 Alexander Larsson 2004-10-01 10:17:08 EDT
How big is it if you gzip it?

Here you go.
Comment 9 Alexander Larsson 2004-10-04 03:38:35 EDT
Do you get any messages in /var/log/messages when this happens?

Also, what sort of filenames are in the directory, and how does the
mount command line for the filesystem in /etc/fstab?
Comment 10 Don Hardaway 2004-10-04 08:17:57 EDT
Need to merge this bug with 129966.
