    GNOME problem with Slackware 10.1


    Hello. I get a error message every time i boot GNOME. It says there was an unknown problem loading settings ( it tried to restart too many times). I'm wondering if this could be a bad burn. I've used the same CD's to test Slackware on my laptop computer and it did the same thing. Anyone know anything about this?

    might be a gstreamer problem (it was with my slackware 10.1 system)

    Hi

    Is this a problem with the ROOT user but not with others ? Or with one specific user and not others ? Does your gnome session continue but give you the "wrong" icons ?

    If so, then you may have hit the "gstreamer" libraries problem. The solution is to do the following :-

    cd /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.8
    mv libgstxine.so libgstxine.so.null

    I can't take the credit for this. I had this error and was ripping what little hair I had left out by the roots when a google search turned up a page authored by a Christoph Willing of the University of Queensland. In there I found a mention of this bug and a link to a posting in alt.os.linux.slackware with the title "10.1 Gnome Error As Root".

    However, I hope this helps !

    Thanks, but that message was a couple weeks ago and i have since replaced Slack with Debian Sarge. I was planning to use it until Deb 3.1 stable was released, which was much sooner than i had thought!


    BTW i had just concluded that it was a bad burn
