Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 228718
Beagle consumes all free space in /tmp
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST
Description of problem:
Beagle would consume all space in /tmp when indexing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install beagle
2. Wait for it to start indexing
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
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE NODE NAME
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
Beagle should consume a sane amount of disk space
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)
See also bug #216863.
What does the file contain?
Could be this problem:
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??)
Joe (assigned to the novell bug) is the upstream maintainer, so he's aware of if.
I've built 0.2.16.2 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
I manually remove them each time.
