User-Agent: Opera/9.50 (X11; Linux x86_64; U; en)
Description of problem:
When a user creates heavy load and a second user connects, often (not always)
this message pops up:
"An error occured when trying to start GNOME-settingdaemon.
Something, like themes, sound or background-settings may not
work as expected.
The last error was:
Did not recieve a reply. Possible cause include: the remote
application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy
blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network
connection was broken.
GNOME will try to start the daemon next time you log on."
This do not happen when logging on localy, only through nx.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect one user to nx server
2. Give the server a ton of work to do (100% cpu usage)
3. Connect a second user to nx server
The above message pops up and the desktop do not work very well (wrong font
size, malfunctioning of the panel programs, etc).
This is a collective comment for freenx bugs. There is a new release packaged as
freenx-server-0.7.2-7 in rawhide and soon in updates-testing. Please test it and
see whether it fixed your report.
Also note that freenx has been split into freenx-server and freenx-client. All
current open bug reports will move to freenx-server once it is created in bugzilla.
freenx has been split into freenx-server and freenx-client. Most open bugs for
freenx addressed parts of the current freenx-server package. See also bug #438660.
freenx-server is currently in testing repos. Please give it a try as it will
soon replace the freenx package.
The Gnome-settings stuff seems to be working as expected in freenx-server 0.7.2-
