file monitoring in im-info-daemon
Last modified: 2008-06-26 22:24:59 EDT
The file monitoring in im-info-daemon is really pretty wrong. It
directly uses fam to set up some monitors, and then adds an idle to the
mainloop that checks for fam events and then sleeps for a second.
Can I recommend to use the file monitoring api that is provided by glib
since 2.16: GFileMonitor/GDirectoryMonitor. These use the best available
file notification mechanism (inotify, fam, fen, ...), integrate
automatically in the mainloop, and are very easy to set up.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Move to rawhide since this is the kind of feature.
Fixed in 0.101.0-1 or later.
