Description Jonathan Kamens 2001-06-22 12:30:58 UTC
You need to change this in the postinstall script:

GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE="xml::/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults" /usr/bin/gconftool
--direct --makefile-install-rule /etc/gconf/schemas/desktop.schemas; true

To this:

GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE="xml::/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults" /usr/bin/gconftool
--direct --config-source=xml::/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults
--makefile-install-rule /etc/gconf/schemas/desktop.schemas; true

Either that, or fix gconftool so that it doesn't require --config-soruce to
be specified when GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE is already set.

Note that it apparently isn't sufficient to specify --config-source without
also setting GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE -- if you do that, gconftool complains
that you need to set the environment variable.

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2001-06-22 16:34:52 UTC
I just built the wrong SRPM yesterday, rebuilding now.

We actually have to comment out gconftool entirely until we fix OAF not to start
oafd just to check whether something is running.
