Could we have an update to 3.36.1 for network I/O fix in Ubuntu 20.04?

Asked by Hamish McIntyre-Bhatty on 2020-11-09

Hi,

There's a bug in gnome-system-monitor 3.36.0 that causes the network usage not to work correctly as documented at https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-system-monitor/-/issues/142 and https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-system-monitor/-/merge_requests/18.

This affects Ubuntu derivatives as well such as Linux Mint 20 (what I use), but I thought it'd be best to get this fixed upstream. Is there any interest in updating this package to 3.36.1 that fixes this issue, or applying the change as a patch to 3.36.0?

Thanks,
Hamish

An upgrade like this will be done only upon a bug report. There already is one with a reference to gnome issue 142 - Bug #1881197

Remark: The gnome document tells:
"Workaround is to set the update interval to an integer."
What update interval did you set?

With a update interval of 1 second it works, I was using 0.25.

I'll move the discussion over to that bug report. Thanks for your comments.
