Description aron j darling 2004-02-20 14:20:03 EST
I am running a laptop with Fedora core 1 on it.  I used YUM to 
upgrade yesterday and today it will not load my desktop.  The xfree86 
comes up to the login prompt (run level 5) I log in and when the 
screen goes blank to load my personal settings it doesn't load 
anything.  If I use run level 3 and "statrx" from the console x-
window starts up but I only have a mouse X on the screen.  If I ctrl-
alt-backspace to get into the console again, there are no errors?

core. Please report a GConf bug.

Can you attach gdb to the running gconfd and get a backtrace?

Just run gdb and type 'attach <pid>' where pid is the process id of

I'm on FC3T1 and getting a signal 11 from gconfd 20 minutes after
Firefox kicks it off (using KDE3). GConf2 version: 2.7.90-1. I
installed debug-info and attached gdb to it. 

Should I start a new bugzilla entry for this? 

This is the backtrace after it segfaults:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
