Description Kjartan Maraas 2006-02-12 19:42:19 UTC
Description of problem:

Looks like lots of packages are missing gconf schemas in the current rawhide build.

(yelp:4623): Yelp-WARNING **: An error occurred getting the gconf value

This is what prompted me to look in gconf-editor and that says "This key does
not have a schema" for a lot of different apps:

deskbar-applet, epiphany, f-spot, gcalctool, gconf-editor, gnome-media,
gnopernicus, gok, gossip, nautilus, nautilus, planner, sound-juicer, tomboy and yelp

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Hi Kjartan,

Just to be sure, this is with version GConf2-2.13.5-3.2 ?

Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-02-13 02:48:01 UTC
actually this might be a result of bug 173869.  It looks like gconftool-2 was
temporarily messed up on the 2nd of February.  Anything that got installed
during that time and not updated since then would be screwed up.

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-02-13 02:54:29 UTC
I've manually unapplied a few packages schemas and done a few package upgrades.
 I can't reproduce.  I'm going to do a full yum update tonight.

Comment 4 Kjartan Maraas 2006-02-13 09:28:23 UTC
I noticed this by chance really, so it could just be random breakage from
earlier of course. I did a yum update on friday IIRC, and then again yesterday.
Seems to me that some of the packages *have* had updates later than 2nd of
february though. Tomboy is one of those at least.

Todays update gave me:

  Updating  : gnome-applets                ##################### [ 17/133]
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.85731: line 10:  5429 Segmentation fault      gconftool-2
--makefile-install-rule /etc/gconf/schemas/$S >/dev/null

Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2006-02-21 18:29:43 UTC
We should verify that the schema update actually works now without restarting gconfd

Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2006-02-23 17:25:12 UTC
Ok, worked fine in testing here.
