Description Thilo Pfennig 2005-03-06 06:40:14 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6)
Gecko/20050302 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-1.3.2

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):
gnome-session-2.8.0-4 metacity-2.8.6-2

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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.
