View Full Version : Nautilus is crashing alot

23rd July 2004, 11:49 PM

I have this realy annoying problem when sometimes the nautilus crashes. I had the same problem with the file-roller so I removed it. but the problem still exists in other things such as when I move a file to a directory which contains a file with the same name - it crashes giving me the error:

Application "nautilus" (process 9286) has crashed
due to a fatal error.
(Segmentation fault)

I have no idea what is wrong - when I use the terminal these problems do not occur so I guess its a configuration problemin gnome.

please tell me what to do...

during the last crash there was an output to the file "session-errors":

OK I am thinking I should upgrade my gnome.
I saw two options : download the rpms and install them all - or download the source and build it from scratch. the problem is both are painful. the rpms are mixed up and I need to select and download the relevent ones and I don't have a clue for building it from scratch.

what is the best way to simply upgrade gnome?

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried using Synaptic?

We had someone else in here with weird nautilus problems, have a look at the thread and how we managed to get to the bottom of it: http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=18296
