Thunar hangs on startup when unavailable network shares are in bookmarks


Description Luca Steinke 2016-02-24 11:11:02 CET
Apparently, when using x-systemd-automount, Thunar seems to somehow access the share and doesn't respond on startup. Journal shows:

-- Subject: Unit mnt-server-data.mount has begun start-up
-- Defined-By: systemd
-- Support: http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/systemd-devel
-- Unit mnt-server-data.mount has begun starting up.
Feb 24 11:01:13 my-computer mount[1730]: Unable to find suitable address.
Feb 24 11:01:13 my-computer systemd[1]: mnt-server-data.mount: Mount process exited, code=exited status=32
Feb 24 11:01:13 my-computer systemd[1]: Failed to mount /mnt/server/data.
-- Subject: Unit mnt-server-data.mount has failed
-- Defined-By: systemd
-- Support: http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/systemd-devel
-- Unit mnt-server-data.mount has failed.
-- The result is failed.

steps to reproduce: /etc/fstab:

# systemd automounts
//   /mnt/server/data cifs    credentials=/etc/samba/credentials/server,noauto,x-systemd.automount,x-systemd.device-timeout=7 0 0
UUID=9A7C301A7C2FF025	/mnt/win10	ntfs-3g noauto,x-systemd.automount,remove_hiberfile	0 0

→ you don't need a real (samba) share, because it has to be not available for this bug to occur anyway. Seems to be related to #12265 – apparently for all network shares. Thunar doesn't respond after the timeout, too.

Thanks for reporting and sorry for the late reply !

I cannot reproduce the bug via samba, since I dont have a samba share.
As far as I can see, I first need to add a bookmark for a samba share.

I added a reply on #12265 ... I believe both bugs are about the same problem, and I have a nfs mount .. so I replied there.

Could you please take a try for the suggestions there ?

I can see this issue with thunar-1.8.14 and a hanging sshfs resource, but don't know of a way to reproduce the problem.
