Description Ray Ishido 2008-10-01 21:00:16 UTC
Comment 1 Gilles Dartiguelongue 2008-10-11 23:21:36 UTC
do you have any interesting information in ~/.xsession-errors. Did you try to run it by hand and see if it crashed ? Are you using gnome-session 2.22 or 2.24 ?
Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue 2008-10-27 00:04:38 UTC
looks like there is a problem in gnome-session 2.24 starting gnome-settings-daemon asynchrously which results from time to time in g-s-d being started to late or even not at all (or is it segfaulting). Although if you don't provide us more information this bug is not going anywhere.
Comment 3 Auke Booij (tulcod) 2008-11-01 10:00:02 UTC
it *may* be possible that i had a related issue, which was that when starting gdm, it would error with some message saying that "gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status code 256". then i downgraded to gdm 2.22 though, which seems to have solved the issue (but left me with a system where sessions didn't get restored, although that got fixed by downgrading gnome-session to 2.22 too :P (dunno if it's related)). and now i'm simply using kdm. anyway, gconf-sanity-check-2 failed in gdm 2.24.

A similar problem was also reported in mandriva's bugzilla: https://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=43783 Maybe this could be an upstream problem :-/
Comment 6 Marcin Kurek 2008-11-11 13:47:33 UTC
I guess my problem was the same, but it fails always. Anyway patch mentioned in #246170 (http://patch-tracking.debian.net/patch/series/dl/gnome-session/2.22.3-2/02_gsd-spawn.patch) solves problem here.
Comment 7 ammar wk 2008-11-12 08:42:07 UTC
i have this problem too, re-emerging the gnome-settings-daemon doesnt solve this problems. and i hate to ruse previous version.
Comment 8 Cedric Girard 2008-11-12 16:10:02 UTC
Created attachment 171545 [details] .xsession-errors I haven't tried any patch yet. Running "killall gnome-settings-daemon && /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon" after being logged in successively start gnome settings-daemon. I've attached my .xsession-errors. Not sure there is anything relevant in it.
Comment 9 Ray Ishido 2008-11-12 20:56:56 UTC
ok, with time the bug is not always reproductible. sometimes gnome-settings-deamon don't start, somtimes it does. a solution is to launch one or twice the appearance application. xsession-errors do not report anythings, and trying to run gnome-settings-deamon manually do not work. I will try the patch
Comment 10 Ian Abbott 2008-11-13 15:30:54 UTC
On my system (dual-core amd64) it doesn't seem random - gnome-settings-daemon fails every time!

+ 13 Nov 2008; <firstname.lastname@example.org> gnome-settings-daemon-2.24.0.ebuild: + Add an explicit dependency on the fixed gnome-session that spawns instead + of using D-Bus. This resolves the intermittent start failures on SMP + systems, reported by Ray Ishido <email@example.com> in bug #239293. And this *very* annoying bug is now fixed. A big thank you to all reporters on this bug :)

Seems to work. Thanks.
Comment 14 Nick Andrade 2008-12-01 12:19:01 UTC
This bug is marked as resolved, but I'm still seeing this issue with gnome-settings-daemon-2.24.1. It's possible it's not the same issue, but the error is identical, and the system it's occurring on is SMP.

Open a new bug guys, this will just confuse the issue.

(In reply to comment #16) > Open a new bug guys, this will just confuse the issue. Has a new bug been opened for this? I'm still seeing it a month later.
