    Default Nautilus Hangs

    Hi,

    I am using openSUSE Gnome 3 (64)
    I recently created an EXT4 partition on my existing HDD. This partition used to hold another Linux Distro which I recently discontinued using.

    I created this partition using the partitioning tool in Yast. As you know, by default only root can write to a newly created partition so I did

    Code:
    linux-so4e:/home/user0 # chown user0 /media/storage2/storage2/
    But the problem is whenever I right click on something & click properties nautilus hangs completely.

    Then I do ALT+F2 > xkill & get rid of nautilus. I just did that & now nautilus wont open at all.

    Code:
    linux-so4e:/home/user0 # fdisk -l
    
    Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders, total 312581808 sectors
    Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0xc86f52dd
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1   *          63    55295729    27647833+  83  Linux
    /dev/sda2        55295791    60581114     2642662    5  Extended
    /dev/sda3        60581115   245135834    92277360   83  Linux

    /dev/sda5        55295793    60581114     2642661   82  Linux swap / Solaris
    Please help me troubleshoot the issue.

    This was a partition used by LMDE? Correct?

    It already existed, you just formatted it?
    Perhaps we could see
    /etc/fstab

    Did you use -R with chown?

    Yes, this partition used to hold LMDE.

    No, I first deleted it then created an EXT4 partition.

    No, I didn't use -R with chown

    I haven't edited my /etc/fstab yet. Here it is

    Code:
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST3160215AS_6RAAA8P8-part5	swap	swap	defaults 0 0 
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST3160215AS_6RAAA8P8-part1	/	ext4	acl,user_xattr 1 1 
    proc	/proc	proc	defaults 0 0 
    sysfs	/sys	sysfs	noauto 0 0 
    debugfs	/sys/kernel/debug	debugfs	noauto 0 0 
    devpts	/dev/pts	devpts	mode=0620,gid=5 0 0 
    /dev/sda3	/media/sda3	ext4	acl,user_xattr 1 2

    The workaround worked

    Did

    Code:
    linux-so4e:/home/user0 # zypper remove nautilus-extension-tracker-tags
    Now nautilus shows the properties window without any issues.

    Thank you.
