Description Aleksey Nogin 2005-04-26 02:21:19 UTC
Currently RHEL 4 has gamin-0.0.17-4. AFAIK, there were numerous bugs fixed in gamin since 0.0.17 - any plans for an RHEL update? Thanks! P.S. The reason I am asking is that our "omake" program that works correctly under FC3, under RHEL4WS keeps dying when FAMNextEvent returns a "Connection failure" error (but gam_server dose not crash, so I do not know what causes the error). I do not want to spend time debugging this if an updated gamin is in the works.

I see a similar problem in my (daemon) application where the application is inexplicably not receiving dir creation events from the gam_server. (in both gamin 0.0.17 and 0.1.3) This seems to happen on a linux box that does not run the gnome session manager... On box1, the gnome session manager has a number of apps that call the gam_server, so it (the gam_server) is always up for the application to hook onto The application starts the gam_server on the box2 unlike box1 because the gnome desktop is not running. And in this situation, the application does not recieve the dir creation events after opening the connection. This is the problem However if I start the gam_server with a small monitor application BEFORE starting the application, it behaves normally.
