QThread locks process on folder
i'm trying to convert qt's QFileInfoGatherer to python the code below is a stripped version of it. The issue im running into is that when QFileSystemWatcher is inside of the Thread it locks the folder if a folder is in its children.
so lets say you have the folders:
you cant delete A from an os level because a process is latched on you can however delete A AFTER B is deleted.
How can i fix this? or what am I missing?
from PySide.QtCore import * from PySide.QtGui import * class FileGatherer(QThread): def __init__(self, parent=None): super(FileGatherer, self).__init__(parent) self.muteX = QMutex() self.condition = QWaitCondition() self.abort = False self.paths =  self.watcher = QFileSystemWatcher(self) self.start(self.LowPriority) def run(self): while True: locker = QMutexLocker(self.muteX) if self.abort: return if not len(self.paths): print "waiting" self.condition.wait(self.muteX) else: print "running" locker.unlock()
