#172 closed defect (fixed)

Difficult to fix a journal filled by downloading

Reported by: lod Owned by: tomeu
Priority: Urgent Milestone:
Component: journal Version: 0.82.x
Severity: Critical Keywords:
Cc: bernie Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: New


I'm downloading a sizeable file and ran out of journal space.
I got an error message which states that the journal is full and offering to show the journal (there's no other option).
When the journal comes up I have about a second to take some kind of action before the error message reappears and takes over the screen.

I was downloading a file off a local http server using the browse activity.

Workaround: Press the show journal button and while the screen is redrawing start tapping on the stop download button. There's not enough time to right click and delete a file.

I am using build 767 on an XO.

Seems to me like this is an important bug -- has anyone seen this? A perfect example of a corner case that no one finds until too late. :)

Yes, the strategies for checking if we are running tight of space doesn't work well with a single download filling everything.

Perhaps the best we can do for now is to tell Browse to interrupt a download before things get too bad?

Still happening (also in dextrose). In general is difficult to recover a full journal.

  • Resolution set to fixed

Now browse stop downloading a file if available space is lower than 50MB.
