Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 240385
add /etc/xdg directories
Last modified: 2009-09-21 15:52:19 EDT
Description of problem:
strace -p `pidof gam_server`
shows that gnome is looking for a bunch of directories in /etc/xdg and in ~, for
menus. These aren't there by dfault, so gamin has to poll to see if they get
created.... redhat-menus should just create them...
Too late for f7 at this point.
It is also probably better to fix gnome-menus to watch the parent directories
instead to spot when the directories are created - a bunch of these non-existing
directories are in ~ anyway, where we can't have packages creating random

Here is a patch that might do the trick for gnome-menus; it is probably better
to do this in gamin itself.
I built a gamin package that watches the directory parents until the directory
is not available.
