Re: File Manager- nautilus segfault - keeps opening at login
Ok, so it is happening to me too.
After logging in, nautilus keeps being opened. Obviously a bit difficult to know how to investigate this one.
I tried creating a new user from a login shell. Logging in to the new user also results in a continuous nautilus opening.
I have temporarily renamed nautilus in /usr/bin so that I can at least log in.
I wondered if that would cause a helpful error message, but it doesn't.
Log entries after logging in with nautilus disabled are:
Apr 5 09:36:11 tonynb kernel: metacity: segfault at 616d2078 ip 008889e1 sp bfed1270 error 6 in libSM.so.6.0.0[887000+7000]
Apr 5 09:36:13 tonynb gnome-session: WARNING: Could not launch application 'gnome-nautilus.desktop': Unable to start application: Failed to execute child process "nautilus" (No such file or directory)
Apr 5 09:36:14 tonynb rtkit-daemon: Sucessfully made thread 4798 of process 4798 (/usr/bin/pulseaudio) owned by '500' high priority at nice level -11.
Apr 5 09:36:14 tonynb pulseaudio: pid.c: Daemon already running.
Apr 5 09:36:17 tonynb restorecond: Unable to watch (/home/tony/public_html/*) No such file or directory
now I am not sure what restorecond is doing but I am suspicious because listing the processes running when lots of file manager windows are opening, I see lots of watch processes - or that may a false assumption.
Grateful for any ideas about this or suggestions how to investigate further.

Should have looked further back in the log. Checking it again when nautilus keeps opening I am getting this entry repeated.
Apr 5 10:05:44 tonynb kernel: nautilus: segfault at 0 ip (null) sp bfcee79c error 4 in libX11.so.6.3.0[101000+134000]
So is this a problem with nautilus, and would reverting to an earlier version help?

yum remove nautilus
yum install nautilus
All now ok
