k3b halts after cd-rw erase
Last modified: 2008-03-09 13:10:47 EDT
k3b halts after erasing cd-rw disk, solution is to use console command "pkill
k3b" which is annoying method.
This happens on FC4 x86_64
everything should be up to date. I ran update few hours ago.
*** Bug 178527 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I can confirm this happening with:
$ rpm -q kernel k3b glibc
$ uname -a
Linux davidthome 2.6.15-1.1977_FC5 #1 Thu Feb 23 14:53:53 EST 2006 i686 athlon
In fact, while k3b appeared to be hung (I've got stuff going on in numersous
desktops), and it's menu's wouldn't drop down, I tried using the X to terminate
it a few times, and did other stuff for an hour. When returned to the desktop
that had k3b on it, it was still there, and still unresponsive. I found that
show desktop, and then something else I dont remember suddenly brought the k3b
error dialog to the front, at which point I could see that it was not able to
erase the CD-RW due to the disc having been automounted.
I think it may be that this application modal dialog can appear behind k3b
window, leaving you know way to get to the dialog (modal). The dialog is also
not shown in the application list icons.
[leaving you no way to get]
