Description pzajac 2002-09-23 17:21:58 UTC
You can mount by wizard many filesystems
(multiselection filechooser). It takes many seconds.
Comment 1 David Simonek 2002-12-06 17:51:18 UTC
Yes, something should be done, ranging from at least progress cursor
to full progress bar. Adjusting priority and ccing UI guy.
Comment 2 dpavlica 2003-01-20 10:02:25 UTC
Yes mentioned progress bar could be part of this global 
status line:

It only depends on agreement that this feature should be 
done for the next release.
Comment 3 Jiri Rechtacek 2003-03-24 15:32:08 UTC
It depends on Progress API (issue 27403).
Comment 4 Petr Nejedly 2003-07-09 14:59:57 UTC
First of all, what is the use case for mounting multiple FSes?
If there's no real use case, just disable multiselection.
Comment 5 Jesse Glick 2003-08-28 18:01:18 UTC
IMHO if mounting several filesystems takes *multiple seconds* then
that is a simple performance bug - there should be no need for a
progress bar for doing something which consists solely of making a
small change to settings. Has anyone taken the time to run a profiler
on this? What exactly takes so long?

There is a use case (at least in the NB 3.x projects system) -
starting a project with many JAR libraries. People complained loudly
about the lack of multiselection before it was implemented.
Comment 6 Jesse Glick 2004-05-01 02:28:41 UTC
No longer relevant for D.
