[SOLVED] Problem with GNOME settings daemon
I installed gentoo successfully (? ) on my laptop. The system is working fine except for the GUI. I first installed gnome-light but it used to give the following error:
The panel encountered a problem whhile loading OAFIID: GNOME_MixerApplet Do you want to delete this applet from your configuration?
I also get the following error:
Error starting GNOME Settings Daemon Some things like themes, sounds or background settings may not work properly. The Settings Daemon restarted too many times. ...
I tried in irc too and emerged many packages like 'gentoolkit'. Nothing has helped. What could be the problem? As a newbie I badly need GUI to further learn online. If you need the output of any command or contents of any files/logs please let me know.

Ok, here is the update.
I added the following lines to my xorg.conf
Section "ServerFlags" Option "AutoAddDevices" "False" EndSection
But I still get the second error related to Gnome Setttings Daemon.

Hmm... Gentoo is not for the newbies for sure....
Anyway, here is another update. I was logging into CLI and from there I used to start GUI when needed. For no good reason, I changed inittab to boot into GUI, by default. Funny thing is, now there is no 'Gnome Settings Daemon' error that I was talking about. I'm wondering how the problem was related to starting X from terminal or from display manager.
As otherwise the problem is solved, I'm closing this thread. If any of you know the explanation please l let me know. If it is not possible to post in a 'solved' thread, you can pm me.
