Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 135151
member of root group unable to delete files from burn://
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:51 EST
Description of problem:
This is a major flaw in nautilus-cd-burner UI, you can remove files
you accidentaly dropped in the cd creation window and there is
actually no way to reset/flush the content of this window.
I actually dont see no other solution but to kill the mapping-daemon
and then kill nautilus. Which is totally user-unfriendly.
Version-Release number of selected component:
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go the the cd creator nautilus window
2. Drop a file in the window
3. Try to remove it
Actual Results: "delete", and even "rename", cant be selected.
The "delete" key wont remove the file.
It used to work in some old versions. At least on FC1/FC2.
err s/you can remove files/you can't remove files/
I don't see this with 2.8.3-4 and gnome-vfs2-2.8.1-7. I'm not sure
what the difference between our system is. Can you try upgrading to
the latest versions of gnome-vfs2 and n-c-b and log in/out and try again?
I currently have :
I needed to change kernel so I've rebooted earlier today, so I think i
can say i have no older-versioned gnome daemons currently running. But
I'm still unable to erase files from the cd-creation nautilus window.
I'll provide any information you need. Just ask. Do you need full
package list (I'm basically running rawhide) ? Or gconf directories
copy, maybe ? i dont think there is private data in them.
It seems nautilus thinks you don't have the right to change that file.
Can you try using gnomevfs-ls burn:/// and gnomevfs-rm
burn:///filename to see if the problem is in gnome-vfs or in nautilus.
[anvil@gruyere ~]# gnomevfs-ls burn:///foo.ogg (Regular,
application/ogg) size 42747269 mode 0644
[anvil@gruyere ~]# gnomevfs-rm burn:///foo.ogg
[anvil@gruyere ~]# gnomevfs-ls burn:///
/me votes for a problem in nautilus..
By the way, directories in burn:/// have permissions 0707. Is this..
normal ? (personal umask is 022)
burn:/// really doesn't exist. Its a virtual tree, so permissions are
just made up.
are you by any chance logged in as root, or as a user that is a member
of the root group?
Ah, user being in root group does cause this.
Fixed in nautilus-cd-burner-2.8.3-6.
For the record, i confirm my user account is member of the root group.
