Re: Gnome problem after upgrading from FC6 to FC7

Hello Ritish,

Thank you. Your instructions worked and I can now get a Gnome desktop environment. I needed to add my apps to the panel but that was no big deal.

I am now working in Gnome. Lovely.

Still a lot of errors in the .xsession-errors file I would like to correct if I can. I have attached a file containing the contents of the file immediately after successfully logging in with Gnome. (current-xsession-errors.txt.gz)

Is the following error still indicate that I have a yum-updatesd error to fix?
dbus.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name edu.duke.linux.yum was not provided by any .service files

Any idea how I might fix these continuing .xsession-errors please? Thank you for all your help to date.

Kind regards,

  Try resetting the user configuration, from a VT ( Ctrl+Alt+F1 ),
before you have logged in.

  $ mkdir gnome_old
  $ mv .gconf* gnome_old

  Additionally, if the above fails a screenshot of the error message. It
seems few of the panel applets are not loading probably due to mismatch
of configuration file.

Finally, yum-updatesd service is not running on system ( dbus error
message as seen from xsession-error file )
