#408 new defect

"auto-retry failed" severely destabilizes nico+ and the whole system

Reported by: pterodactyle@… Owned by: quinox
Priority: major Milestone: Release 1.3.0
Component: nicotine Version: SVN
Keywords: auto-retry failed, crash Cc:


after checking "auto-retry failed" (in the download tab), nicotine+ (both 1.2.10 and 1.2.12svn) crashed very often, one time crashed xorg and two times even completely hanged the whole system (even the magic sysrq keys didn't work). it didn't crash instantly, but after some time. the system hanged both times i was absent from the pc for 20+ minutes and always crashed if i browsed files of a certain user.

the problems disappeared today, after i unchecked this option again.

This might just be coincidental - can you check this option back and see if the problems return?

yeah, funny thing, the moment after i wrote this here and in the chat, nico+ ate the whole cpu core and lagged like hell (this symptom i forgot to mention). after 5 minutes or so it got better again, but while i was sleeping, it hanged again and after i entered the hotkey for gmrun to kill it, xorg crashed again. so, no luck for me :( however, it worked nearly the whole day nearly whithout any problems, while before it crashed during the first two minutes after starting...

anyway, 1.2.10 works pretty stable right now, svn - like described in the previous comment, eventually it eats lots of cpu and doesn't respond for 5-10 minutes or hangs completely. it didn't affect the rest of the system anymore, however.

Try sharing less (or nothing) - the problem might be due to svn getting lots more uploads because participating in searches works again.
