Description Kamil Páral 2022-04-26 11:13:55 UTC
Description of problem:
After updating to gvfs-1.50.0-3.fc36 or gvfs-1.50.0-4.fc36 (both are broken), webdav mounting no longer works in Nautilus. I can no longer connect to the Public folder on other computers. I can't even connect to my own Public folder on localhost.

When I downgrade to gvfs-1.50.0-2.fc36, everything starts working again.

I don't see any messages in system journal which could help debug this. But [1] says "Rewrite DAV backend to libsoup async API to fix crashes (#2062465)" so the rewrite was probably faulty.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gvfs-1.50.0-2.fc36  # works
gvfs-1.50.0-3.fc36  # broken
gvfs-1.50.0-4.fc36  # broken

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F36 Workstation
2. open Nautilus, go to ~/Public
3. click Sharing Settings in the top bar
4. enable Sharing, and enable File Sharing (no password)
5. in Nautilus, go to Other Locations
6. under Networks see "$user's public files on $hostname" item
7. click on it
8. after some waiting, an "Opening... [Cancel]" dialog appears
9. even if you wait long, the shared folder is not accessed

10. downgrade to gvfs-1.50.0-2.fc36, reboot
11. repeat steps 5-7, see the folder mounted immediately
