Description of problem:
Popup window informorming of this error when opening a GNOME session
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install package
Pop-up message, that it was unable to start daemon
daemon should run
(Uncertain as how/why this error started. After a package download ? Conflicts with other packages ? )
REASON for error: file /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon is missing
RPM reports that the file IS part of pkg: control-center-2.20.3-2.fc8
If so, what has removed the file ?
(checked other files from the package: my quick check shows they are installed.)
(checked setting desktop effects under System/Preferences - not possible, just
a bunch of new alerts )
My X11 is xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.8.0-1.fc8, which may have some connection ?
( see Bugzilla Bug 436635 )
Does reinstalling the control-center package bring
/usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon back ?

Anything I should add ? Tests I should do ?
I am no expert, and pretty tired, so please give instructions as what
I should type. A bit to tired to think myself ;)

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
