Thread: Slab popups all the time

    PS Can anyone tell me how to undo "chattr +i"?
    I do mean without reformatting the hard drive and reinstalling everything!
    I am unable to perform many functions, so my system is now unusable as is.

    It would seem logical that using a -i parameter would reverse it. That is what is stated in the documentation I can find on the chattr command for e2fsprogs: But when try I, what I get is:
    " # chattr -i .gvfs
    chattr: Permission denied while trying to stat .gvfs"

    chmod has no effect, nor does rm or rmdir even for root. Any advise?

    The hidden folder .gvfs has attributes dr-x------. Change them to drwx------ the try again. I don't use chattr because it's dangerous if you don't fully understand it (and I don't). Maybe chattr has already made it impossible to chmod as a normal user. [Try chmod and rm as root of course].

    I believe that the proper fix can be found at novell for the slab errors poping up all the time.

    I supose I'll begin reformatting my hard drive and reinstalling to fix my system from the damage caused by the "recomended fix":
    "chattr +i recently-used.foo".

    I'll never take that "advise" again!!

    PLEASE READ!
    Apparently
    chattr +i Can be reversed with chattr -i

    More info here:
    The Furtive Penguin - Protect Your Files and Folders with Chattr and Lcap

    Don't use commands unless you understand them. Especially those executed as su.!

    Advice would be to leave well alone.
    I certainly don't recommend it as I have insufficient knowledge of the subject.

    I found this information in bugzilla from a link posted earlier in this thread:

    "We started the update process for gvfs on 11.1. I think the update is ready in September and you can get it through the normal update channel."

    Click here to see the bug.

    What I did was to add a traditional Gnome Main Menu (right click in the panel bar and choosing "add to the panel") and removing the slab main menu. When the update comes, I'll use the new menu again.

    this my workaround:

    make a script:

    name:xp-pro.sh
    path file vmx:/var/lib/vmware/VirtualMachines/XP-Pro/XP-Pro.vmx

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    sed 's/"file:\/\/\/var\/lib\/vmware\/VirtualMachines\/XP-Pro\/XP-Pro.vmx"/"\/var\/lib\/vmware\/VirtualMachines\/XP-Pro\/XP-Pro.vmx"/g' /home/utonto/.recently-used.xbel > /home/utonto/.recently-used.xbel.tmp
    mv /home/utonto/.recently-used.xbel.tmp /home/utonto/.recently-used.xbel
    chmod 600 /home/utonto/.recently-used.xbel
    
    vmplayer /var/lib/vmware/VirtualMachines/XP-Pro/XP-Pro.vmx &
    sleep 5
    
    sed 's/"\/var\/lib\/vmware\/VirtualMachines\/XP-Pro\/XP-Pro.vmx"/"file:\/\/\/var\/lib\/vmware\/VirtualMachines\/XP-Pro\/XP-Pro.vmx"/g' /home/utonto/.recently-used.xbel > /home/utonto/.recently-used.xbel.tmp
    mv /home/utonto/.recently-used.xbel.tmp /home/utonto/.recently-used.xbel
    chmod 600 /home/utonto/.recently-used.xbel
    give it the execute permission
    chmod +x xp-pro.sh

    make an alias

    alias xp-pro='/path/xp-pro.sh'

    put the alias in /home/utonto/.bashrc

    start the virtul machine via shell whit "xp-pro"

    bye bye
