Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 63039
Evolution tries to startup networking again and again
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:47 EDT
Description of Problem:
I was trying to get my onboard SIS 900 nic working and had recompiled
an older version of the driver. This version didn't work when I tried to load it and I had copied it
over the original driver.
Meanwhile I was playing with evolution and had told it I was
working offline and was importing mboxes from Kmail. I played with the settings to add more
newsfeeds. But I soon was very short on resources.
Evolution tries to startup networking
service when requesting newsfeeds but the request doesn't time out when it fails to load the nic
module and the processes hang. But, it doesn't stop there. It tries this for every newsfeed
listed and repeats after 10 minutes. Eventually tons processes where trying to initialize the
network and I was receiving heavy harddisk access.
I closed evolution but that didn't help.
I when to runlevel 3 and that didn't help. I attempted to shutdown some of the processes but it was
taking forever. I ran halt and 20 minutes later only a few of my daemons had stopped and their was
still heavy harddisk access so I pressed the reset button.
Version-Release number of
selected component (if applicable):
Evolution 1.03 from Slipjack 7.2.93
I am sure I could reproduce it but I really have no desire to.
1. Shutdown networking and unload nic module. Replace nic module with invalid
2. Setup Evolution to pulldown several newsfeeds.
3. Wait 30 minutes or so for the
problem to effect system performance.
Sounds like more reasons as to why gnome-vfs is no longer being used for HEAD
Do you see this with 1.2.x in phoebe?
