Hi, For a while now the file monitor program fam has been replaced by gamin. When using KDE it seems to have the following issues:
- when opening a directory with konqueror/kuickshow/some other KDE program, where removable media(USB stick, CDROM) is mounted, KDE/gamin seems to keep the directory occupied, causing problems when trying to unmount the removable media. When using fam instead of gamin, there's no problem unmounting the device. - sometimes I still can't unmount the media even if all KDE windows (and other programs) are closed. I think some instance of gamin or KDE keeps running although all windows have been closed. This also indicates sometimes not all processes are terminated well. Now I'm using fam instead of gamin again. I think it should be nice if this would become standard or the gamin issue wil be resolved, because it's quite annoying not being able to unmount removable media all the time. Did someone else experience the same behaviour? Strange thing is that when I try to find processes keeping the mounted device occupied, nothing can be found, with fstat nor with lsof. This could be because gamin's only polling a short time in a period. /Bastiaan _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
