Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189711
Starting the GNOME Settings Daemon
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
Description of problem:
At the end of the startup several windows flash by, ending with a window which
begins with (translated from Dutch):
"There was an error starting the GNOME Settings Daemon"
"Some things, such as themes, sounds, or background settings may not work
"The last error message was:"
"System exception: IDL:Bonobo/GeneralError:1.0"
After closing the windows, everything seems to work nicely.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
??? (problem occurs from the moment I updated from FC4 to FC5)
Always when starting up.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn computer on
2. (I need to use interactive setup to block kudzu: running kudzu hangs the
computer with only the power-button working)
(as described above: flashing windows + window with messages)
No such windows at all.
About the kudzu-error: I think there are already two recent bug-reports on this
Component-choice: I just guessed.
I'm afraid this isn't very useful. Could you please try to launch
gnome-settings-daemon by hand, after having logged in in failsafe mode?
Which errors do you see on the command-line? Do you still see this problem on
your current setup?
The problem occurred on a notebook-computer. Five months ago I removed FC 5 from
that computer, so I'm afraid I can't offer any additional information.
Thanks for the notice, closing then.
