Is this an upgrade from Fedora 2 beta ?
upgrade from FC1 to FC2
see bug 120858 - others have also had this problem. I think they have
also said it's not limited to the i386 platform.
Some could clear it up by removing or changing an options line in
xorg.conf, for others (myself included) this didn't work. It happened
to me with a fresh install of FC2, after updating some packages with
apt. It didn't occur when logging in as root, but did occur for other
non-root accounts I created. I got rid of it by reinstalling and not
downloading any updates yet. Sounds like Andrew Rechenberg and others
are on the trail -- I'm just going to sit tight and be careful about
what I update until it sounds like someone has managed to fix it.
i still get this bug too with a fresh install of fc2.
i disable all client in the gnome-session default file but i still got
this infamous warning and the gnome desktop is messed
well i don't have the problem for a local user but for an nfs based user.
Same problem is happening to me. Fresh install of FC2 with all the
latest up2date packages installed. Gnome works fine for root, but
fails as above for non-root users. I have tried everything in Bug
120858 to no avail. One twist - KDE appears to work in that it
doesn't throw a pop-up message, but applications will not start. This
bug appears to be a duplicate of Bug 131103.
