Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 864482
/etc/virc does not know about /run/media
Last modified: 2013-07-31 22:07:32 EDT
Description of problem:
The standard /etc/virc uses an autocmd in the fedora augroup to disable writing swap files by default to paths commonly used for removable media and network file systems:
25 " don't write swapfile on most commonly used directories for NFS mounts or USB sticks
26 autocmd BufNewFile,BufReadPre /media/*,/mnt/* set directory=~/tmp,/var/tmp,/tmp
This should probably be extended to also filter /run/media since this is the new default location for removable media mounted in a user session.
autocmd BufNewFile,BufReadPre /media/*,/mnt/*,/run/media/* set directory=~/tmp,/var/tmp,/tmp
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
vim-minimal-7.3.* on F17 and greater
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit a file on external media mounted under /run/media
2. Check for a swapfile
Swapfiles are created on external media mounted under /run
Swapfile behaviour consistent with traditional removable media mount paths
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
