Set this to High because the gnome-desktop will be totally useless to first time
linux users, and also because panel does crash.

Can you upgrade to gnome-panel 2.0.6-9 or newest available in rawhide, and be
sure this bug still exists?
Comment 3 qwnsknight 2002-10-03 15:43:55 EDT
Sorry, I did not get a chance to upgrade to the latest rawhide.
Though I have upgraded to RedHat release 8.0. The exact error is still there.
I did complete the bug submit through "bug buddy", so look for duplicate.
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-10-03 15:57:46 EDT
Yes, sorry, this definitely exists in final. It's fixed in system-tray-applet in

Comment 6 Corey Bissaillon 2003-09-25 16:10:37 EDT
As a workaround,  I:
1) Removed  .gconfd/lock/ directory (which caused gnome-panel to generate it's
own -funky- panel at the top of the screen).

2)Copied the
/root/.gconf/apps/panel/profiles/default/panels/bottom_panel/%gconf.xml  to
overwrite the corresponding file in my non-super-user's path.  

After restarting X, gnome-panel no longer crashed, and in fact was replaced with
the custom launchers I had defined intact.  

That's all I had time for... hope this input helps to track it down!
