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

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 

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 

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.
