Description of problem:
gnome-settings-daemon cannot start (shows an error message and exits)
On a 32bit system it works ok.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always. Tried with my account and a new account, in fail safe gnome but the
Steps to Reproduce:
Not sure how this problem came to be but I assume :
After upgrading to FC5 from FC4 it worked ok till :
1. While trying to remove accessibility packages with pirut I accidently removed
control-center and gnome-session.
2. From KDE I reinstalled them
3. In gnome the gnome-settings-daemon error message showed and my font and icon
settings where ignored.
4. did a groupinstall "GNOME... " but didn't help
5. Removed and reinstalled control-center and libxklavier but it didn't help.
6. Set the XKB information manually in xorg.conf didn't help but I could write
See attached error message (from fail safe gnome in a clean account )
not this error.
If I try to start gnome-settings-daemon from the command line (not sure if this
is how is supposed to run ) it fails with :
The program 'gnome-settings-daemon' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
(Details: serial 2671 error_code 2 request_code 116 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Ok it has nothing to do with the reinstallation of the packages.
it is the evdev driver for my mx510 mouse. When I use it I gnome-settings-daemon
When I use the mouse driver in xorg.conf it works ok (except my buttons :()
