RFE: newer gamin for RHEL
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:17 EST
Currently RHEL 4 has gamin-0.0.17-4. AFAIK, there were numerous bugs fixed in
gamin since 0.0.17 - any plans for an RHEL update? Thanks!
P.S. The reason I am asking is that our "omake" program that works correctly
under FC3, under RHEL4WS keeps dying when FAMNextEvent returns a "Connection
failure" error (but gam_server dose not crash, so I do not know what causes the
error). I do not want to spend time debugging this if an updated gamin is in the
Internal RFE bug #156006 entered; will be considered for future releases.
In progress, gamin-0.1.1-1.EL4 pushed,
I see a similar problem in my (daemon) application where the application is
inexplicably not receiving dir creation events from the gam_server.
(in both gamin 0.0.17 and 0.1.3)
This seems to happen on a linux box that does not run the gnome session
On box1, the gnome session manager has a number of apps that call the
gam_server, so it (the gam_server) is always up for the application to hook
The application starts the gam_server on the box2 unlike box1 because the
gnome desktop is not running.
And in this situation, the application does not recieve the dir creation
events after opening the connection. This is the problem
However if I start the gam_server with a small monitor application BEFORE
starting the application, it behaves normally.
This is updated in U2 and U4.
