Description Peter M Aarestad 2002-10-07 17:16:38 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

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):

How reproducible:

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

Additional info:

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!
