Description Arjan van de Ven 2007-05-16 22:04:37 UTC
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...

Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-17 17:33:02 UTC
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.

Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-09-14 15:14:40 UTC
I built a gamin package that watches the directory parents until the directory
is not available.
