Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 50915
Konqueror Locks up when I mouse over an mp3 file.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:29 EDT
Description of Problem:
I am trying to use Konqueror to browse my mp3 server. I am able to browse
the folders and even view a list of mp3s that in a folder, however when I
mouse-over an mp3 (this will select the file in konqueror) that instance of
konqueror locks up. I think this has to do with the fact that it's trying
to preview the file, and the default kde mp3 player has issues (see bug:
50912 that I submitted earlier). This does not happen when the file are
local, however it doesn't preview, or when I click on it, the mp3 does not
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use Konqueror to browse to an mp3 file on any smb server (windows or linux)
2. put your mouse over an mp3 file (or click to select if you have kde
setup for double clicks)
3. Game over... Konqueror is locked up, must Ctrl-Alt-Escape (Skull and
Crossbones) to get rid of konqueror.
Konqueror Locked up.
Preveiw of mp3 file, or even just not locking up and letting me continue.
I think this is related to a lot of problems KDE 2.2 seems to be having
with smb shares.
Konqueror does not crash when I mouse over an MP3 located on a smb server that
I mounted mounted the smb server by executing "smbmount //smbserver/share
/mnt/dir -o username=me password=foo" as root. I then went to Konqueror and
browsed to this directory.
So the problem is possibly related to the smb ioslave.
Probably caused by 50914+50912
