User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050927 Fedora/1.0.7-2.1.fc4.nr Firefox/1.0.7
Description of problem:
When I click on a folder and then right click and select "Create Archive" Nautilus dies without creating anything..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on a folder in Nautilus
2. Select "Create Archive"
3. Choose a destination (it does not seem to matter)
4. Enter name of archive to create
Actual Results: Nautilus crashes.
Expected Results: I should have got a nice archive of the folder.
This seems to be dependent on the size/complexity of the archive. I have found
that it works fine for small folders, but dies on larger folders.
On small folders:
* A dialogue box pops up with "Getting File List" and a progress bar
* This is then replaced by another marking the progress.
On large folders:
* Nautilus dies before the "Getting File List" stage
(N.B. In this case Small -> 2MB , Large -> 714MB)
Reassigning to file-roller, which is what implements the create archive function.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.
Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
