Crashing mount folder


I seem to be able to access my windows partitions by directly typing /mnt/win etc....

but i cant seem to browse the /mnt folder itself as it causes the browser to crash....

does anyone know why? its causing problems where i cant access and catalogue my music correctly as every time i try and point to it in amarok, its crashes.....

any help would be appreciated.....

What program do you use to browse? What does your /mnt look like? (do a "ls -l /mnt" in the console to find out)

I'm using konqueror from KDE....

the results from the command you ask me are:

[mark@localhost ~]$ ls -l /mnt
total 48
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 29 18:47 cdrom/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 29 18:47 cdrom2/
drwxrwxrwx 0 root root 0 Jul 30 10:31 floppy/
dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 4096 Jul 28 23:52 win_c/
dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 4096 Jul 28 22:23 win_c2/
drwxrwxrwx 18 root root 32768 Jan 1 1970 win_d/
[mark@localhost ~]$


Which are all my partitions.... so why cant i manouver into the /mnt folder directly without crashing? is comes up with a window like the ones in XP after 10 seconds saying the the window is not responding.....

I do not know why it is crashing. But I know one way to find out (or at least try to): open up a terminal and type in "konqueror /mnt" and check all the output from Konqueror. There may be some nice error message there that you can post back to us. If not, try to go into /mnt with some other application. Also, what version of konqueror do you use? If it is very old, try upgrading since it may be some bug or something.

Just my thoughts on it.

the console returns the following error:



konqueror: ERROR: Error in BrowserExtension::actionSlotMap(), unknown action : searchProvider



I'm using konqueror 3.3.2 from KDE 3.3.2 apparently , in order to install the newest version (3.4) i need to install the newest kde which is 3.4.2...... i'm looking in the forums for more info on how to do this....
