Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 251996
polkit-gnome consumes 100% CPU when attempting to mount a volume in Nautilus
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:51:53 EST
Description of problem:
When attempting to mount a NTFS drive in Nautilus (via double-click in
computer://), it hangs and polkit-gnome consumes 100% CPU until killed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a file browser
2. Browse to computer://
3. Double-click in the NTFS drive (it seems to be labeled "XX.X GB Volume")
polkit-gnome eats CPU cycles
polkit gnome mounts the drive if possible or fails with a popup dialog explaining so
It seems to occur with all drives too - It also just happened when trying to
mount my ext3 drive.
Maybe a seperate bug, but it was already mounted via fstab. I could see /Media3
(the volume I tried to mount) in the Nautilus sidebar but there was also a
"100.00GB Volume" entry which also corresponds to the same /Media3.
Double-clicking that started the CPU cycle waste. I'm not sure if this deserves
to be reported against polkit-gnome or nautilus.
David, are you able to reproduce this ? Sounds potentially bad.
I can't reproduce this anymore, using PolicyKit-gnome-0.6-0.git20070925.fc8.
However now instead of eating my CPU nothing happens at all.

This is because the gnome-mount needs to be rebuilt. Will do that soon.
gnome-mount has been rebuilt
