labview stopped at "init tmp resource files" on FC4

any guys here using Fedora Core 4 Linux?

I have installed Labview 7.0 on many Linux distributions successfully. And Labview worked well. But now I found I can't run Labview 7.0 correctly on Fedora Core $.

When I started "labview". the welcome screen was displayed. But it paused at "init tmp resource files". This message is displayed at the right bottom of the welcome picture. And the CPU is used almost 100% by labview. After about 30 seconds, the labview collapsed - the welcome picture is closed. And no more action.

here is the snapshot

Have any guy here encountered the same problem as me?
Can anyone give me the suggestions?

just use the command like:

[root@silver ~]# tune2fs -O ^dir_index /dev/hda3
tune2fs 1.38 (30-Jun-2005)

I have recently encountered this same problem so I decided to bump this thread instead of creating a new.

If I have understood the problem correctly the situation arises because of ext3's b-tree indexing which does not guarantee that '.' and '..' are the first two files in a directory (something that at least older versions of labview seem to rely on).

To deactivate 'dir_index' (or use ext2) feels a bit akin to the all too common advice of not using selinux instead of trying to do a workaround for the application in question. Maybe there is some other solution, like manually forcing a reorder of the files in the affected directories or creating new symbolic links to '.' and '..' that are guaranteed to appear first in a directory? Does anybody know how to achieve this?
