Re: fam problems
Wish I had anything constructive to add other than, "me too."

I, as I am sure many of your do, suffer from the "fam problem". Basically it
goes like this: I will be working away quite happily, I go to open a file and
fam hits 100% cpu load and never stops. This has happened with all my Debian
boxes (testing and unstable on i386 and pure64).
On my old machine I wasn't that worried about it. It was a pain to have to
restart fam (it has to be done as the root user) but the processor was slow
enough that 100% load didn't generate that much heat. With my new box though
we are talking crispy processor after it's be banging away at 100% load for a
couple of hours because I didn't notice fam was playing up.
What's the best way to fix this? I tried writing a cron job that would check
to see if fam was using more than 50% of the processor but for some reason
top always reports 0% processor usage when run via a cron job. I don't mind
disabling fam even but what's the best way to go about this? I would like to
remove it but Gnome depends on it.
As you will see if you have a look at the bug reports this is a well known
problem and it doesn't look like it's ever going to be fixed.
