I am having freezes when emptying trash on Mint 7

Postby cdysthe on Mon Jul 27, 2009 9:40 am

Hi,

I am having complete freezes when I empty the trash in Mint 7. I use the ext4 file system which seems to be the problem:

Since I am not on Ubuntu I choose to post it here also since it may affect Mint users on ext4.

I would also like to ask if people here think this is a problem with the way Gnome empties trash which could be fixed, or if it the ext4 file system itself having issues? I mean, I can empty a lot of files at once using other file managers and even Gnome itself. It's the empty trash operation in particular having the problem.

From what I read it appears to be a kernel-filesystem issue and that this update to the kernel would solvbe the problem:

So if I installed a 2.6.29.x kernel the problem would be solved? I have never updated the kernel in Mint. Is it even possible without breaking a lot of stuff? Is there a newer kernel for Mint 7 available even?
