Description of problem:
I can not login with gnome-session any more after changing my graphics
card and mainboard.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
(Not reproducible on all machines!)
1. try to log in as normal user with GNOME
Actual Results: While loading Metacity that is displyes on the splash
screen there is not much progress. After a very long time some startup
applications are loaded. There is no window manager!
Expected Results: Metacity should be loaded quickly and then nautilus
and then the startup apps.
I only have this error on one user. I have tried to delete .gconf* or
.gnome* - but hat does not change anything. i can log in as root with
gnome or any other user. I can not detect any errors.
I can start a good looking gnome session with "gnome-session
--failsafe" if I start this with the right $DISPLAY set from console.
KDE is also running fine.
I think this should never happen. It leaves the user no choice but
deleting the whole directory.
this was a result of mixing FC3 with FC4testing3 if I recall correctly.
