Description of problem:
Starting the X (gnome-panel?), Nautilus or Gedit produces error messages
'FAMOpen failed, FAMErrno=0' to console. Creating a new folder to desktop causes
also an error.
New users won't see panel (waited few mins and then Ctrl-M-Backspace'd).
However, the desktop is working but slowly.
Old users will see the panel, but it takes a long time to load.
Short-cuts (eg. M-F1) won't work until panel has appeared.
Using nautilus to navigate directories takes lots of time and produces about
five errors per directory change.
Starting X as an old user produces at least 25 errors and the final error is:
is not set, can't load launcher
After this, the panel shows up and short-cuts starts to work (eg. M-F1).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Error to console:
FAMOpen failed, FAMErrno=0
Nothing unusual in log files and rpm -Vva does not report anything that should
relate to this. Should you need any logs/info, just let me know :)
I've been using 8.0 since the release and it has worked fine. Until now. I have
no idea what is corrupted (if any).
Try upgrading to the latest xinetd errata and restart xinetd + portmap. I think
that should fix it.
FAM is bounded to portmap and I had filtered portmap like this:
-A RH-Lokkit-0-50-INPUT -p tcp -m tcp -s! xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx --dport 111 -j REJECT
By removing line above from my /etc/sysconfig/iptables everything works again.
I got a clue from:
And google found something like this
So this is known issue. I guess that this is now resolved. I will open a new bug
against rhl-sg component to get this documented.
