system-config-nfs uses GtkFileSelector
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:11 EST
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click "Add"
2. In "Basic" tab, click on "Browse"
Old-school GtkFileSelector pops up
New-look GtkFileChooser dialog should appear
If only GtkFileChooser weren't so slow displaying directories containing many
files... (SCNR ;-)).
Hmm, after really trying it out it seems to be my disk anyway.
Or not? I'm confused.
When cached, both old and new stile file selection display /usr/bin after about
a second. But if not cached, the old one takes about 40 seconds versus more than
140 with the new one. Any idea why that is the case?
Currently, it can be really slow, yes (although I believe this is with the the
GNOME-VFS backend; you can give it a regular file-hierarchy backend instead;
this may be faster).
(There's probably a bug in our bugzilla already about the slowness)
Fixed in system-config-nfs-1.3.12.
From User-Agent: XML-RPC
system-config-nfs-1.3.16-0.fc4.2 has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
