Description Edward Grace 2005-11-02 07:03:39 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050927 Fedora/ 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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Edward Grace 2005-11-02 07:14:08 EST
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Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.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.
