Limbo beta2, started after installing the long list of updates via up2date
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-07 16:54:12 EDT
Should be fixed in latest gnome-session which doesn't have the settings daemon
in default.session, if you have settings daemon in ~/.gnome2/session you may
need to remove it (or use session control panel)
Comment 2 Nathan G. Grennan 2002-08-07 17:18:51 EDT
gnome-session 2.0.4 doesn't fix this problem and gnome-setting-daemon is no
where to be seaon in ~/.gnome2/session.
Comment 3 Kevin Worthington 2002-08-08 10:52:35 EDT
I got the same error message box, after running up2date, when I restarted GNOME.
The reason I restarted GNOME was because the up2date process made me lose sound.
Restarting GNOME didn't help, but rebooting with the new kernel that up2date
installed seem to work. (kernel2.4.18-7.93)
Comment 4 Nathan G. Grennan 2002-08-09 03:00:31 EDT
I have rebooted multiple times and I am using a custom compile of 2.4.18-7.93
Comment 5 Jay Turner 2002-08-09 11:09:57 EDT
Havoc, I'm still seeing this warning on first login after installation
(therefore no .gnome2/session file at all) with gnome-session-2.0.5-1.  Have the
machine here at the desk if you're interested.

Finally got this fixed by installing 1.0.3 of bonobo-activation

Comment 9 Tim Keitt 2004-03-17 11:39:54 EST
Why then does the problem go away after a reboot? This seems to be
more of a problem with NFS locks than with gnome-session.
