Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-02-14 11:47:29 EST
Description of problem:
Beagle would consume all space in /tmp when indexing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install beagle
2. Wait for it to start indexing

Actual results:
Here is the culprit in /tmp:
> ls -lrS | tail -n 1
-rw------- 1 michel michel 8633151488 2007-02-14 02:09 tmp536a4ab4.tmp

> lsof tmp536a4ab4.tmp
beagled-h 3530 michel 35w  REG 253,0  8633151488 1903290 tmp536a4ab4.tmp

The process had to be killed with -9, and it took minutes for the space to be
fully released

Expected results:
Beagle should consume a sane amount of disk space

Additional info:
I have a 500GB external hard drive mounted, and there are symlinks to it from
$HOME (Music -> /media/external/Music, Movies -> /media/external/Videos, etc)

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2007-02-15 04:20:36 EST
What does the file contain?
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2007-02-15 10:47:30 EST
Could be this problem:
Comment 4 Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-02-16 00:07:16 EST
It might be that. I have several ISOs in the external drive that would appear to
be under $HOME due to symlinking .. but nothing that's > 10 GB in size,
certainly (on my other laptop Beagle consumed 20 GB and then ran out of space)

I'm afraid I did not get to see what the file contained. Upstream seems to have
acknowledged the bug? (Beagle does not have a size limit when unpacking archives??)
Comment 5 Alexander Larsson 2007-02-16 04:29:00 EST
Joe (assigned to the novell bug) is the upstream maintainer, so he's aware of if.
Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2007-02-22 23:46:59 EST
I've built in rawhide, which fixes the novell bug cited above.
Please reopen if this issue is still there.

I'm still seeing lots of leftover /tmp/tmp*.tmp files each time beagle runs
(from cron?).

I manually remove them each time.
