This is most likely a problem with sshfs rather than with ranger.

The workaround I use is described in the link in my previous post: Adding "ServerAliveInterval 15" in ssh_config. It makes sshfs remove the mount point when it disconnects.

I'll set the bug's status to "Invalid".

Maybe this helps:


"If there's no obvious fix for the sshfs freeze issue, could you possibly make the process killabe?"

"if you mean a hanging sshfs connection causes Ranger to stall, that's not Ranger's fault but a shortcoming in the current fuse implementation. try adding "ServerAliveInterval 15" to ssh_config, then connect sshfs with the "reconnect" parameter."

Ranger freezes after a ssh mount point gets unavailable. It may not even be possible to kill it afterwards with pkill -9 ranger.

steps to reproduce:

mkdir somedir
sshfs user@host somedir
ranger somedir
<cut the connection to host>

Possible solution:
A second thread which interrupts ranger from trying to access the directory after a timeout. Though I don't know how to implement the interruption.
