Thread: Dolphin crashes when viewing mounted partition.

  1. #1

    Default Dolphin crashes when viewing mounted partition.

    I am having a problem with Dolphin where if I am trying to view the files in an extra partition I have mounted it crashes. It only does it on partitions not usually mounted at start up. The error it gives is:

    Executable: kdeinit4 PID: 6209 Signal: Aborted (6)

    I am running fully updated openSUSE 11.4

    that is strange!

    how are you mounting this extra partition?

    what is the file system of the extra partition?

    is it on the hard drive you boot from?

    or a different one? where is that different hard drive?
    inside your computer?
    on a USB cord?
    on some other type connection?
    on another computer in the local net?
    on some other computer in a far away place, via the internet?

    if not on your machine, what protocol and clients are you using to
    access? (tcp/ip, samba, ssh, ftp, etc etc etc)

    has your 11.4 always had this problem, or did it suddenly begin having it?

    what version of KDE4 are you using?

    you say your 11.4 is "fully updated", what does that mean exactly: that
    is are you updating from factory, tumbleweed, playground,
    stable/unstable community repos?

    or do you mean fully updated from oss, non-oss, update and packman only?

    Is this kde as shipped with 11.4 or have you added kde46?

    What format is the partition?
    Is it the only partition that does this?

    Default Re: Dolphin crashes when viewing mounted partition.

    First, by fully updated I mean fully updated from oss non oss, update, and packman. I am using the KDE that comes with 11.4, so 4.6.0. The partition is an ext4 partition, and yes it appears to be the only one that it does it to. The hard drive it is on is not the boot hard drive, and yes it is internal. the strange thing is that it tends not to crash if I browse other files for a while, it seems to only crash when I open Dolphin and immediately try to view that partition. Also, this problem just started a day or two ago, and I don't believe I had any recent KDE or Dolphin updates.

    You might want to do a check on that partition

    i agree with that!..

    something strange somewhere..

    i'd say to boot to run level three, unmount that partition and fsck
    it.... see man fsck if you need to know which switches...or ask..

    and, if that partition has problems that fsck fixes, i'd run it against
    all linux partitions on that disk..

    and, check the drive using s.m.a.r.t.

    OH! if you are running any raid, LVM or reiser--forget everything i just
    wrote because i know nothing about those file systems (except they
    introduce a high level of complexity with little benefit, for me.) and
    remind you to read my sig's caveat..

    this may have come from a update, and you may have uncovered a software
    bug, but it sounds like a scary hardware problem to me......you might
    wanna mount that (those) partition(s) read only and copy the data off as
    your first step! just to be sure fsck doesn't help you lose it all..

    if fsck and smart says it is a healthy drive maybe we can help you find
    the software problem to report (maybe not)..

    (of course, we all know you probably already have a good backup, so i
    just mention it in passing..)

    Yep I do have a backup, and e2fsck seems to believe the drive is fine. tried using smartctl but it doesn't seem to do much. I may be using it wrong.

    Yep, I left off the -a on smartctl. But it reports that the drive seems to be fine. Also, tried logging in with a different user and had no problems.
