Re: [Shotwell] 100% CPU consumption

How many "Skipping hidden files" messages are you seeing?  More to the point, do they keep appearing or do they eventually stop?

It's possible this is a database issue, but I have a suspicion this is the startup process that checks to verify your photo files are in the places the database last saw them.  What I don't know is why this is continuing without stopping.  Do you have metadata writing turned on?  Where are your photos located?  Are they on your local disk, or are they on a USB drive, network storage, etc.?

There is no more verbose logging.  Everything should be written to the log file.

This is what I see in the log file: L 16444 2014-09-19 12:03:19 [MSG] main.vala:385: Shotwell Photo Manager 0.18.0 L 16444 2014-09-19 12:03:19 [MSG] main.vala:43: Verifying database ... L 16444 2014-09-19 12:03:22 [WRN] DirectoryMonitor.vala:916: Skipping hidden file/directory /home/malsburg/Pictures/.DS_Store And then many more of the "Skipping hidden file" warnings. But I guess these should be ok. Is is possible that the database is messed up? Can I just delete it and have it rebuilt? If yes, where do I find it. Is there another way to extract information from the shotwell process. "shotwell --help" doesn't show a verbose flag. Thank you! Titus On 2014-09-19 Fri 11:48, Jim Nelson wrote:
I don't recall any reported bug similar to this. It would probably help to look in the Shotwell log file (~/.cache/shotwell/shotwell.log) and see if there's anything suspicious there. -- Jim On Sat, Sep 13, 2014 at 1:41 PM, Titus von der Malsburg <malsburg posteo de> wrote:
Hi list, I'm a happy Shotwell user with a photo library containing around 3000 photos that I took over the last two years. I really like Shotwell's simplicity and straightforwardness. However, now I encounter a problem that renders Shotwell pretty much unusable. When I start the program (on Ubuntu 14.04) the GUI comes up and Shotwell consumes 100% of one CPU core. Shotwell continues to keep this core busy even if I wait a long time and the GUI is only partly responsive: I can look at pictures and change folders but when I empty the trash, the GUI hangs. Likewise, it's not possible to import images from my camera (used to work). I see the message "Starting import" but nothing happens. Is this a known problem? If yes, how can I fix it? Please let me know if you need further information. Thank you! Titus _______________________________________________ shotwell-list mailing list shotwell-list gnome org
