Description Kim Lux 2004-10-29 12:36:14 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020

Description of problem:
$kfind -v
Qt: 3.3.3
KDE: 3.3.0-5 Red Hat
KFind: 2.0

$rpm -q kfind: not found
Must be part of kdebase ?

When I run kfind for simple searches it hangs.  

Example: Named: MyProject  Look In: file:/home/krlux
Example: Named: *wlan0  Look In: file:/etc/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.0 ?  

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open via start, put in the parameters and press find. 

Actual Results:  It hangs.  It doesn't return any results.  It won't
close.  It doesn't refresh its display.

Additional info:

It was a problem in FC3T3 and is still in FC3RC3.

I have the exact same problem.  It was a problem for me in Fedora 2 
where I got around it by disabling FAM.  I found out that in Fedora 3 
FAM has been replaced by GAMIN, so I don't know if that has anything 
to do with it.  I don't know how to disable GAMIN.  So right now I 
can't search for files in KDE!

It seems to be associated with gamin.  If I simpley move gam_server
out of the /usr/libexec directory, kill the gam_server process then
the kfind utility seems to work properly.  The test search I was using

to search for "man" in the "/usr" directory and its subdirectories. 

Displays the symtpoms above with gam_server running and works fine
without it running.

i have now added a patch in kdebase-3.3.1-10, which will fix this
problem. It will show up in rawhide soon. Thanks for your report.
