Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 963428
With every new open file (song), six DIR filehandles stay open
Last modified: 2014-01-16 02:15:30 EST
Description of problem:
Whenever new file is selected to play, the number of DIR filehandles increases by six. Eventually parole rejects to play the next song because it reaches too many open files.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -q parole
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start parole.
2. Get its pid.
3. Run lsof -p $the_pid.
4. Hit Ctrl + O and select some .ogg file, play it.
5. Hit Ctrl + O again and select different .ogg file, from different directory.
3. Run lsof -p $the_pid again.
There are six DIR filehandles of the first directory and six for the other one.
If you select the first file again, there will be six more.
The number of open files should not grow with every new song played.
Bug is still present with parole-0.5.2-1.fc19.x86_64.
Hi Jan, can you please take a look if it's still present with parole 0.5.4?
If its still present I believe we should file a bug with upstream guys.
F20 - https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/parole-0.5.4-1.fc20
I don't have local Fedora 20 installation to try. What behaviour do you observe on your installation with the steps from comment 0? Is there anything in 0.5.4's changelog suggesting it's been fixed?
Hi Jan, I can confirm the issue, but here with parole-0.5.4-1.fc20.x86_64 the number of DIR filehandles are 4 instead of 6. I'm not sure if something was changed in the code to use less filehanles than the older version.
Filled a bug upstream: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10600
Great, upstream fixed in http://git.xfce.org/apps/parole/commit/?id=61821b73c94fa8f498fe3fe78a8fc686295275f8
Will be fixed in next 0.5.x upstream release.
