Fulltext search freezes when encountering a pipe file
When doing a fulltext "Search file contents" search, Catfish kept freezing on me. I couldn't scroll, stop the search, or close the window. I have to kill the app. Turns out one subdirectory had a pipe file in it and when it gets to it it just stops and freezes.
- Make a new directory
- In a terminal, in that new directory, create a pipe file:
mknod pipe-file p
- Open that directory in Catfish, and in that directory select "Search file contents"
- Type anything and search
At this point Catfish will says "Searching" but not search anything and just freeze up. No verbose input when opening from terminal.
I'm using Catfish 1.14.3 on Xubuntu 20.04. If there's anything more I can try or add let me know. Thanks!
