Nemo runs CPU usage at about 80% when opening the root of a partition and does not show contents

Post by BrunoMiranda » Wed Dec 19, 2018 4:16 pm

I'm having trouble accessing the partition I've destined for documents on a SSD drive. Nemo runs CPU usage at about 80% and it does not show the contents of the root of that partition. Sometimes, if I open some shortcut for a folder inside that partition, Nemo opens it no problem (others, it chews up the CPU), the issue here seems to be on the root of the partition.

I've tried formatting it with the Disks software, by terminal, using some other options, trying with and without bigalloc, reclaiming (and also not) the root space on that partition with -m switch, and even changing kernels, but the symptom persists.

This is the output from fdisk -l:

Code: Select all

Device     Boot    Start       End   Sectors  Size Id Type
/dev/sda1           2048    309247    307200  150M  b W95 FAT32
/dev/sda2  *      309248  31029247  30720000 14,7G 83 Linux
/dev/sda3       31029248  83458047  52428800   25G 83 Linux
/dev/sda4       83458048 248610815 165152768 78,8G 83 Linux98%
The OS in question is in /dev/sda3 and the issue I'm having is with /dev/sda4

This is the /etc/fstab entry for automounting:

Code: Select all

UUID=ac099714-1421-488a-9a84-c22e12bd6d6e	/media/Documents	ext4	defaults,noatime,errors=remount-ro 0	0

Nemo version is 3.4.7.


Any hints, folks? Thanks.
Bye for now,
Bruno

Funny... If I format this partition with NTFS or EXT3, it all works fine. Nemo is not liking this partition having EXT4!

Even funnier and weird: If I delete this partition on Gparted and recreate an unformatted one, the system will pick up the previous EXT4 partition and all the data it had there before deleting the partition! Is this a bug or a feature!?!?

But the real cause of the problem seems to be on the /etc/fstab file: if I comment it's line regarding this partition (it's above on the main post), I do not have any problems with Nemo, it works fine and does not increase CPU usage.

Can anyone notice any anomaly on the /etc/fstab entry?
