Description of problem:
KDE: 3.3.0-5 Red Hat
$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):
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.
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FAM has been replaced by GAMIN, so I don't know if that has anything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.
