Description of problem:
Whenever I start GNOME, the startup sequence goes fine, and I see the deskop,
but none of the icons appear. I then checked my running processes, and saw that
nautilus was running, but refused even "kill -9" directives to die! Subsequent
attempts to start nautilus were also frozen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login using GNOME as the desktop manager
2. Wait until the toolbar appears, so you know that GNOME has loaded
3. Start a terminal and run "ps aux | grep nautilus" to confirm that nautilus is
running, but not responding
Actual Results: nautilus is confirmed to be running, but the desktop is barren
of icons, and does not respond to left- or right-clicking.
Expected Results: GNOME and nautilus should come up normally
This is a new install - no customization was performed on the system.
are you using NFS or AFS?
are there any messages from sgi_fam service in /var/log/messages?
can you strace the nautilus?
Well golly, it's working now. Never mind!
