Description of problem: fam fails to update contents of nautilus window. Both a
xinetd restart and a reboot fail to start fam. The xinetd restart yields this
messages in /var/log/messages.
xinetd: pmap_set failed. service=sgi_fam program=391002 version=2
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.update fam to most recent rawhide version (2.6.8-10)
2.fam no longer runs.
3.Nautilus windows are no longer updated.
Nautilus windows are no longer updated.
The contents of nautilus windows would be dynamically updated using fam.
I tried recompiling fam with the most recent glibc (2.3.2-48) and gcc/g++ 3.3-5,
but I received the same error message. I am using xinetd-2.3.11-1.10.0.
It works for me.
Could you try:
service portmap restart
service xinetd restart
and then restart nautilus and see if it works?
If anything was ever broken it is fixed now. This bug should either be closed or
closed and labelled notabug.
