error: failed to stat /home/jack/.gvfs: Permission denied
I get that error when using "lsof" from inside an xterm where I did "su -":

minas-morgul:/home/cer/Bugzilla # lsof
lsof: WARNING: can't stat() fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon file system
Output information may be incomplete.
... (lsof output folllows)

The problem is this:

minas-morgul:/home/cer/Bugzilla # l /home/cer/.gvfs
ls: cannot access /home/cer/.gvfs: Permission denied

And I'm root!
Is there a fuse fs mounted there?

It seems like it has problems...

The fuse mount is not the problem afaik, rpm tries to stat every mount
when doing a transaction. The error is ignored in this case (and has
been for weeks in factory afaict). Its unlikely this is the cause of
the failure.


I hit that problem some weeks ago, but I can't remember how I got rid of it, probably by booting from DVD and removing .gvfs directory.
