Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 477863
amarokFS (from package: amarokFS-0.5-4.fc10.x86_64) uses all available memory when run

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/2008121622 Fedora/3.0.5-1.fc10 Firefox/3.0.5
Upon running /usr/bin/amarokFS, all memory is consumed and the system starts swapping. At this point the mouse starts to become unresponsive (extremely jerky) and the music skips (using Amarok from package: amarok-2.0-2.fc10.x86_64).
Various errors relating to DCOP are reported via stdout (when run from the command line). This is obviously because Amarok 2 does not use DCOP and so all calls fail.
I'll attach the error messages I get.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. `yum -y install amarokFS`
Memory is consumed and machine starts swapping (usage increases until amarokFS is killed). No graphical activity occurs.
AmarokFS should run as a full-screen application (like this http://www.kde-apps.org/content/preview.php?preview=1&id=52641&file1=52641-1.png&file2=&file3=52641-3.png&name=Amarok+Full+Screen) and be capable of controlling a running Amarok.
If amarokFS cannot contact the DCOP server or call Amarok's DCOP functions it should print an error message saying so and terminate.
As far as I can tell amarokFS is built for Amarok 1.4.x but for some reason is included as part of Fedora 10 - for which only Amarok 2 is available. Still, I don't think it should be doing what it's doing.
Also, I'm unsure about the severity so I'll just stick with medium (though I think it could be Urgent or Low, based on the descriptions for these levels).

These are the errors that are sent to stdout when running amarokFS from the command line.
amarokFS is a retired package; closing this bug
