I can confirm the problem but have not done better than 'yum remove nautilus'.

Confirmed! Mine is doing that after a clean install!

I've removed nautilus and reinstalled. Same problem.

The only work around is:

sudo yum remove nautilus

Reinstalling Nautilis brings the problem back.

I could not find it or disable it in 'Startup Applications'.

Had the same problem and saw lots of the following output in /var/log/messages :

Feb 4 00:01:43 localhost kernel: nautilus[29719] general protection ip:7f2b4af2733c sp:7fff0ee43290 error:0 in librsvg-2.so.2.26.0[7f2b4af01000+37000]

As a workaround, I ran:

yum downgrade librsvg2

Oh thank heavens, it isn't just me then!

I solved the initial infinitely-spawning-tasks problem by "sudo mv /usr/bin/nautilus /usr/bin/nautilus2", then waiting for all the many Nautiluses to crash out, then renaming it back again afterwards. Curiously, this seems to have fixed the problem permanently, in that I wasn't plagued by the startup problem afterwards, but typing "nautilus" at the terminal produced nothing more than "Segmentation fault". I, too, tried uninstalling and reinstalling Nautilus.

"sudo yum downgrade librsvg2" refused to run, but I did have success with:

CODE
sudo yum downgrade librsvg2 librsvg2-devel


This allowed Nautilus to run again. Unfortunately, it then started nagging me to reinstall the broken update.

Thanks for the replies, much appreciated.

The suggestion given by Torasan, works well, only problem if another upgrade is done the whole thing will be repeated.

I should point out that, I have an old computer which I use as a back up, and it had no problem with the update, business as usually , the new one did have problem!
Thanks to all of you.

Hi,

I only just installed SL 6 yesterday. And I can confirm I had this exact same problem as soon as I updated then restarted my computer. I imagine that this problem is quite common amongst a lot of people.

Does anybody know as of yet whether there is a permanent solution to this problem, or even what the nature of the problem is? Is there any alternative to Nautilus?

MGN

EDIT: The downgrade trick has worked for me as well it seems

Not so fast. When I next turned my computer on, the problem was back. I tried downgrading librsvg2 again, and sure enough, the broken update had been installed behind my back!

Is there any way of stopping this? What on earth is the point of a package manager which doesn't allow you to refuse updates?

Latest amusing development is that the terminal now refuses to start up. That's going to quite severely limit my ability to deal with this problem in future, given that the only workaround is a series of terminal commands...

Confirmed:
I' am getting the same error nautilus after updating 6.4 TO 6.5 and restarting is bug upon log in.

Question:When do i yum remove the lib package, right after update to 6.5? or after the restart. script kiddie here.

Also. Dell inspiron celeron laptop not affected by update! brothers laptop auto updated 6.5 from 6.4 no nautilus errors and when you start firefox he has a differnt welcome to scientific linux page!

Me too, it reinforces my suspicion that Redhat does very little (if any) testing of desktop related packages and updates, I have seen a few other desktop related regressions recently (too minor to bother reporting given that Redhat most likely will ignore them anyway). dry.gif

This is a strange issue.
Because I recently upgraded several systems from SL6.4 to SL6.5 and this problem did not occur on any of them huh.gif
