Project -> Find File crashes Redcar

Reported by robl | March 18th, 2010 @ 04:00 PM

Hi there,

I'm using Redcar on Ubuntu, I was using Karmic Koala and now Lucid (development branch). But on both I find that Project -> Find File freezes and eventually crashes Redcar so I've not been able to even see the results of a single find.

Here is the console output, I don't know if it gives you much to go on. Redcar freezes and becomes unresponsive about 2 seconds after I start typing a search term. The 'find files' shows in the console 17 seconds later.

Redcar 0.3.4 ( x86_64-linux )
java -Xmx500m -Xss1024k -Djruby.memory.max=500m -Djruby.stack.max=1024k -cp "/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/redcar-" org.jruby.Main "/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/redcar-" --no-sub-jruby
Redcar 0.3.4 ( java )
loading linux64/swt
took 1.29s to attach bundle menus
took 0.003s to attach bundle menus
update list took 0.001s
find files (35 dirs) took 17.513s

Is there anything else I can do to help you fault find this?

All the best

    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    Do you have a directory open in the side pane? Is it an enormous one?

    • Tag changed from find file to find file, git

    Hi sorry for the delay, don't see your update. I do have a directory open and yes it appears the amount of files is actually quite high but not ridiculous.

    rl@bloodandguts:~/core$ find -type f | wc -l
    rl@bloodandguts:~/core$ find .git -type f | wc -l

    Its mostly .git files / directories that are taking up the room, well certainly in terms of volume of files. Is there any way to ignore certain directories? I haven't been working on any other projects of late but I've just switched this over to a new Rails app and it works fine. Although I was actually looking for the searching inside files as well, which I guess isn't there yet.

    17.5s is much longer than I would expect it to take. For me it takes a second or two with

    $ find . | wc -l

    What are your machine specs? (This is not an excuse, but it is important to know.)

    We are going to make this a background task soon, so maybe that will help.

    Hi Daniel,

    No problems. The spec is

    2Gb RAM
    Processor 0: Intel(R) Pentium(R)Dual CPU T2330 @ 1.6GHz
    Processor 1: Intel(R) Pentium(R)Dual CPU T2330 @ 1.6GHz

    I'm running Ubuntu 10.04(lucid)
    Kernel 2.6.32-16-generic

    Its not the fastest machine in the land, but not terrible either.
