Description Nicolas Mailhot 2002-11-13 11:50:27 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr-FR; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003 Description of problem: Upgrading to 9 nov. rawhide caused gnome-session to hang on startup on the two boxes I've tested (one PIII the other athlon). When using a splash screen it hangs before any icon is drawn. Reverting to RH 8.0 Orbit* (+ gconf, bonobo, oaf...) sort of fixes it, gnome session starts, but lot of gnome parts crash afterwards with + cannot create instance of abstract (non-instantiatable) type `GtkWidget' ; Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Upgrade to 9 nov rawhide ORBit*/gconf*/oaf*/bonobo* rpms. Actual Results: Useless login (empty blue screen sicne I had disabled splash screens) Expected Results: Normal login Additional info: This bug has rendered two stations about useless (Ok, I know that using rawhide can cut, this is one of the most severe breakages I've seen so far)

Still here after all this time, dropped all RH 8.0 throwbacks and went full Raw Hide. One of the test boxes has an nfs /home, and login in from a RH 8.0 station works so it's not a user config problem. Right now I'm reduced to login in failsafe mode, and launching metacity & gnome-panel by hand in the xterm like in the good old gnome 0.6 days (plus usually any control-center applet to load user config) I am the only one with this ? Since I can reproduce it on two independently installed stations, this would really surprise me.

I can confirm this bug on two machines here. I have since gone back to stock RH 8.0 bonobo.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-09 15:44:25 UTC
Downgrade to bonobo-activation 1.0 (the newer bonobo-activation was backed out, maybe it's still stuck in rawhide, I don't know). It may also work to upgrade to a newer control-center. The crash about 'GtkWidget' is fixed by upgrading libgnomeui, fwiw. Anyhow, this is working in our current tree, not sure about the ftp site sync.
Comment 4 Nicolas Mailhot 2002-12-09 16:34:14 UTC
It works, thanks. Unfortunately none of my rawhide sync scripts understands reverting to an older version, so I was stuck with the old new buggy one. Maybe upping the epoch in this case would have helped ?
