Gamin support doesn't work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:50 EST
Description of problem: Auto-refresh with gamin doesn't work unless you rebuild
the Thunar package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.5.0rc2
How reproducible: Everytime
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Thunar, open Terminal
2. $ touch test
3. No "test" file is shown in Thunar
Actual results: No "test" file is shown in Thunar
Expected results: "test" file should appear in Thunar
Additional info: After rebuilding the Thunar package I was immediately able to
see the "test" file when I touched it. I can also see other file operations
Sounds like something didn't get built right with gamin somehow?
Odd. It works fine for me here... Thunar was built with gamin support:
checking for gamin >= 0.1.0... 0.1.7
checking LIBFAM_CFLAGS... -I/usr/include/fam
checking LIBFAM_LIBS... -lgamin-1
What is the output of 'rpm -q Thunar' there?
I'm not doubting the official package was built with gamin support, but for some
reason it isn't working when I use the official package. It affects two systems
I use XFCE on. One is a development machine(32-bit), and another is a desktop
I finally got fed up that it wasn't refreshing automatically I rebuilt it
manually and it's working fine now. Per your SPEC file, you can't even build
Thunar unless you have gamin-devel installed, so I'm as puzzled as you are on this.
Forget the desktop machine, it works fine. For some reason it only affected my
32-bit machine. Unsure if the reinstall of the Thunar did something... so you
might put this bug on the back burner for a few weeks and if you don't hear from
me it's probably nothing to worry about.
So both machines are now working? Or the 32bit devel machine is still not working?
I reinstalled the official Thunar package and it seems to be OK. Reinstalling
seemed to have fixed it.
