Description Andrew D. Stadler 2004-10-11 16:24:20 EDT

Description of problem:
(apologies if this is mis-filed.  gnome-search-tool doesn't appear
anywhere in bugzilla)

I recently had an issue with corrupted user accounts and I decided to
try a "search and destroy" of my entire disk to find and kill any
remnants of a broken account.

As an experiment, I tried using the desktop search tool.  Knowing that
many of my files were root-only I launched the search tool from sudo.
 Then I did a big content search.  Well, my server is still new and
there aren't *that* many file on it.  But 30 minutes later it acts
like it's still searching.  I am pretty sure it's just hung.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  from terminal, sudo gnome-search-tool
2.  leave filename entry blank
3.  change search path to "/"
4.  show more options
5.  add an option "contains the text"
6.  enter search string you know will exist (e.g. your username will
appear in a few /etc/ files)
7.  click "find"


Actual Results:  30 minutes later it was still searching and not a
single hit

Expected Results:  (a) slow but steady trickle of "hits" (e.g. from
/etc/ files)
(b) completion sooner than this
(c) if it really is this slow, how about a progress bar?

It seem to work fine in rawhide.
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 12:20:46 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 3 Andrew D. Stadler 2005-05-04 20:25:45 EDT
Confirmed, seems to work fine in FC3/latest.  gnome-desktop-2.8.0-3
Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-05-04 21:32:32 EDT
Okay closing.
