Description Dennis Jacobfeuerborn 2008-09-04 21:46:24 EDT
The gnome-settings-daemon fails with an assert in the xrandr plugin in when the latest version of gnome-desktop is installed:

** (gnome-settings-daemon:5433): DEBUG: Loading /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon-2.0/libxrandr.so
** (gnome-settings-daemon:5433): DEBUG: Registering GsdXrandrPlugin
** (gnome-settings-daemon:5433): DEBUG: Creating object of type GsdXrandrPlugin
** (gnome-settings-daemon:5433): DEBUG: GsdXrandrPlugin initializing
** (gnome-settings-daemon:5433): DEBUG: Activating xrandr plugin
** (gnome-settings-daemon:5433): DEBUG: Starting xrandr manager
ERROR:gnome-rr-config.c:677:configurations_free: assertion failed: (configurations != NULL)

"gnome-rr-config.c" is actually a source file in the gnome-desktop package.

The result of this assertion is that the desktop does not get initialized with the proper settings (wrong keyboard layout, theme, etc.).

One way to fix this is to remove the file "/usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon-2.0/libxrandr.so", the other is to downgrade the gnome-desktop package to "gnome-desktop-2.23.6-2.fc10.i386" (and the respective control-center package as a dependency).
