Re: Error starting Gnome Settings Daemon?

I just logged into my F9 laptop after some recent updates I got an error "Error Starting Gnome Settings Daemon". Relogging nor rebooting helped. I tried moving my .gconf, .gconfd, .gnome2 directories and letting gnome recreate them but it didn't help.

I searched the web but most everything I found was from 2006 or earlier.

Anyone else having this problem or have suggestions?

I did update with the new rpmfusion repo but not sure if that's the cause. I reviewed my yum.log but none of the packages that updated on that day jumped out at me.

BTW, what is the name of the executable or the Gnome Settings daemon? I was expecting something like gnome-settings but didn't find anything like that.

Thanks to those who responded, but it turns out that the culprit was the gstreamer-ffmpeg package from rpmfusion. It provides a gstreamer plugin that gnome-settings-daemon tries to load.

For posterity, here's the output from gnome-settings-daemon when the gstreamer-ffmpeg package is installed:

Please either:
- remove it and restart.
- run with --gst-disable-segtrap and debug.

As you can see it segfaults on the file /usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstffmpeg.so. I did a yum erase on the package and it doesn't appear that there are any packages that depend on it. So far so good...

Thanks,
Richard
