IO blocking issues with udisks2, cp file to usb causes E to become unresponsive
Open, NormalPublic


I was copying a couple 2GB ISOs to USB. In doing so E desktop became extremely unresponsive. I could not even SSH from another system without major delays. Same for typing and/or moving windows. This seems to be related to udisks2. Unrelated to E, when udisks2 mounted my USB drive and I tried to copy the ISO's they would never finish. The copy operation never completed. That made the issues with E last till I took action.

Now I mounted the USB drive directly as root, bypassing udisks2. I then did the same copy operation and had NO issues with E. I did the same copy under KDE using udisks2, and had no issues with blocking IO. But the copy operation never completed. The not completing is a udisks2 issue. But E definitely has some issues with blocking IO when using udisks2 mounted devices. I will file another bug on the copy operation not finishing with udisk/


I do not think kernel and versions of other things matter. But I can provided if needed.

Mounted via udisks2
