    Default More Browsing problems with KDE and Gnome


    Dogit why in the world can't i browse to my home folder from inside
    Dolphin or writer any other kde app. If i have the correct rights and
    can do it from the command line.
    This is a real pain because i have to log in as the root user just to
    attach documents online. Just another thing Suse 11.1 broke.
    Someone help, Also think i had a root home folder with installs folder
    i can no longer access even as root.
    Bill

    Something else i just realized if the installs folder was
    in the roots home it might have gotten nuked during the upgrade.
    Not a big deal don't remember anything really important being there.
    Although would like to fix the fact that when i type Suse-Home:~# ls
    the computer hangs.
    If this is due to the roots home folder being missing, how do i create
    a new root homefolder and reassociate it?

    I am having a problem as well!

    I cannot go to my home folder as root or my regular user with nautilus
    it just hangs forever.

    I can browse using command line. Is there a fix for this it's the most
    annoying thing ever!

    For years I have heard linux guys trash windows because it's more
    unstable but I have to tell you, using windows xp since it first came
    out I experienced crashes very infrequently and I have never had
    something like this happen. Linux may be more stable as a command line
    server only but as a desktop it leaves much to be desired in my opinion.

    Disabling the jexec service in Yast -> runlevel services worked for me
    as well.

    However it breaks the workspaces in my taskbar and breaks all my
    desktop icons, completely removing them. Probably breaks something else
    but I just logged back in.

    UPDATE:
    ok so after I disabled jexec and restarted, I went right back into yast
    and enabled jexec. Logged off/on and things are working normally again
    for now.

    I've also disabled jexec Yast2 > System > services > disable > OK ! and
    now it works, even FileZilla 3 which wasn't loading the right way
    starts up cleanly.
    THANKS

    There was a little problem with this issue. The jexec comes from Sun's
    rpms located in java.sun.com, but we expected that users use a Sun Java
    packages shipped with openSUSE, so it takes some time while this was
    investigated and fixed :-).

    See 'bnc#463582' (https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=463582) -
    fix is in update queue.

    If you want to use a jexec service, just remove

    install binfmt_misc /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install binfmt_misc && {
    mount -t
    binfmt_misc none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc; }

    from /etc/modprobe.conf as a workaround.
