Hello Tobias, your commit 59db8a5ea2241927 in kcoreaddons enabled inotify support on FreeBSD 3 years ago, but I wonder if it's a good idea? According to the FreeBSD CI , inotify support on FreeBSD is either suboptimal or at least different from inotify support on Linux: many tests fail, while they all pass on Linux.
I wonder if the other backends (QFSWatch, Stat) wouldn't be better suited on FreeBSD, since those actually work fine according to the FreeBSD CI. Unless someone is willing to debug what's happening with inotify on FreeBSD, how about we disable the inotify backend on FreeBSD?  https://build.kde.org/job/Frameworks/view/Platform%20-%20FreeBSDQt5.15/job/kcoreaddons/job/kf5-qt5%20FreeBSDQt5.15/9/testReport/projectroot/autotests/kdirwatch_inotify_unittest/ -- David Faure, fa...@kde.org, http://www.davidfaure.fr Working on KDE Frameworks 5
