Re: [Shotwell] Freezes after a while

Thats the thread that regenerates the thubnails. There is already a ticket about this, reason unknown. For some reason it thinks that all thumbnails are outdated, always.

What is the 'thumbnailer'? Is there something I can do about this? It's happening quite often now.

That's an indication that the thumbnailer is running in the background.

Don't background it. If you still want to see the log, tail it in a different term. Look in /var/log (possibly syslog) for any error messages. See if there is still a process for Shotwell running after a freeze. Pure guess, if you haven't got enough memory it may be the OOM killer in action.

I suspect it *is* busy. It's happened again. shotwell running in foreground. No diagnostics in logs file, terminal, or syslog.

According to System Monitor it definitely looks to be doing a lot. Memory: 1.8GB (16GB PC) 100%CPU. I'd selected about a dozen images to tag (Ctrl-T), and it was looking promising, and now just hanging. But I'm pretty sure it isn't.

From the terminal window:

10 minutes apart. And unrelated to anything I was doing in the program.

I'll leave it overnight and see what happens.
