Error Failed To Stat .gvfs

Access denied to root when using sudo mount. –Nuzzolilo Jan 1 at 8:56 @Nuzzolilo I have no idea what you're talking about. See above. Managing trust boundaries with FUSE filesystems is difficult, because the filesystem driver is running as an unprivileged user, as opposed to kernel code for traditional filesystems. this contact form

I do not think there is any reason it needs to be mounted in the user's home directory, so perhaps moving the mount point to /tmp or /var/run would alleviate the Does the string "...CATCAT..." appear in the DNA of Felis catus? Yes, but here the situation is different: readdir() returns an entry that cannot be stat()ed.

  • This is a common problem with fuse-mounted files systems I think: not even root can access them, unless a configuration setting is changed somewhere for the mount.
  • Because /run is a tmpfs to contain only ephemeral runtime information.

Your backups should use --one-file-system to make sure they stay out of things like /run, /proc, /sys, /dev.

Nikolaus Rath (nikratio) wrote on 2008-11-13: Re: ~/.gvfs causes various errors #40 I am not going to argue about the definition of a bug. Why? If you're searching for a file on local filesystems only, pass -xdev to find. You're just seeing other symptoms of the same underlying problem; FUSE's configuration not allowing root to do anything, as it normally can.

This does not work if there is a fuse mounted .gvfs in there. There is a bug in gvfs, reported in launchpad, which puts it into that state (which I don't understand). That is not spamming. navigate here I'm suspecting that the daemon auto launcher is configured a certain way but I cannot find the configuration documentation to do so –Nuzzolilo Jan 1 at 19:06 add a comment| up

They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own. I don't really understand what fuse is, but after reading a bit from the bug report in your comment and don_crissti's comment, I'm guessing this has to do with a USB How to prevent contributors from claiming copyright on my LGPL-released software?

I think this is a "well-know" bug, reported several times. Is GVFS a new thing in Hardy? Best, -Nikolaus -- ┬╗It is not worth an intelligent man's time to be in the majority. Linus agrees [1].

A related message is here, although it's terse enough to border on being called rude. The above command only reinstalls the packages, so this won't change anything. And even if I have mounted filesystems where my root account has nobodys rights, then it should be possible to exclude them with rsyncs -x option (don't cross filesystem boundaries). his comment is here I don't know about ecryptfs, but a fuse filesystem does not need to run as root in order for --allow-root to work (is this what you assume?). > At the end

If that is not acceptable, how about excluding the GVFS mount point on the find command line? –tripleee May 29 '13 at 5:46 add a comment| 3 Answers 3 active oldest
