Yet Another Nautilus bug!

Sup everyone, basically what's transpiring is a Nautilus-3.2.1-2.fc16 crash every time I attempt to load it from either terminal or clicking on the icons of the Applications graphical menu list. After performing a google search, and having found out that.. You guessed it, a ton of Fedora, Red-Hat, SUSE, Mandriva, and every other rpm-based distros I google checked have experienced this, for example:http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho....php?p=1266047 So now what I need to ask you guys is, what's the next best course of action I should be taking in fixing it? Command-line, removing the package manually or another walk-through on config file editing? You tell me.

Re: Yet Another Nautilus bug!

Are there any more questions I need to answer in order to get one answer, besides the fact that I configured my LAN through network settings successfully?

Re: Yet Another Nautilus bug!

reinstalling nautilus won't fix the problem if it is what I believe it is.

Are you seeing errors in your ~/.xsession-errors file?

Something like... Gconf shutting down?

Lots of people have been getting that lately, and I have been getting it since about a week or so ago after an update.

It affects nautilus, gnome terminal, firefox, thunderbird, and other applications as well. firefox and thunderbird just throw up an error box, but will run.. The other applications won't even run, they usually segfault.

Not sure what is causing it, or what the fix is yet, though..

For now, restarting gnome is about the only way to get things back, at least for awhile.

Edit:
BTW, that post you link to in your original post was several years old, and does not pertain to the current version of nautilus that is in gnome 3.

Re: Yet Another Nautilus bug!

I know now that there is no pertinence between this bug and the old one in said post, but I just initially thought their was an interconnection, my mistake. I will however, continue to keep my eyes peeled for Firefox glitches.and others. Check out this recompiling process output:

Complete!
In spite of all that command-line success it still crashes and SELinux gives me an ABRT message, that /usr/bin/nautilus was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)? What next?

Re: Yet Another Nautilus bug!

Well, there a number of signal 11 open cases for nautilus in bugzilla. I would try to disable all gnome shell extensions, and see if that makes a difference.

Re: Yet Another Nautilus bug!

it's difficult to say what's happening, because you didn't post a dmesg error or a backtrace, but i'm experiencing something similar. it's related to the proprietary nvidia driver and glibc i think. so if you are using the nvidia driver try this from terminal:

Code:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1 nautilus
