Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 217664
Persistence of out of date NFS mounts causing startup delay
Last modified: 2008-03-18 14:33:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Recently I have changed ISP, which has led to a change of network address at
home. This means my NFS mounts are of course at different addresses than they
The problem is that at GNOME session startup gnome-terminal is starting up and
trying to open a tab with one of the old NFS mount locations. This is causing
autofs to try and mount the old address, which doesn't work but takes a long
time to fail, causing nautilus to hang whilst this is going on.
The odd thing is that I have obviously not had a tab open at the old NFS address
for a week now, since the change to the new network.
I'm not sure whether this should be considered a bug in gnome-terminal or
gnome-session - please reassign if necessary.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to GNOME
Nautilus and the initial terminal hang, waiting for the non-existing NFS mount
Nautilus and the terminal should start normally
Perhaps the component should be changed to gnome-terminal because this problem
seems to be caused by terminal wanting to open up 'obsolete' tabs i.e. from a
previous session, not the last one?
Though that might be caused by gnome-session.
We no longer support Fedora Core 5 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state. I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
