Re: [K12OSN] reinstalling gnome after server upgrade

IIRC, I had a 4.x server with a separate /home partition. I installed 5.0 on a separate server, and just mounted /home from the 4.x box. It didn't go well. Something with Gnome and its various hidden files in ~/ didn't work well under the 5.0 box; I think I got things like missing icons, missing menu items, erratic behavior, etc. I ended up just moving user files from the old server to the new, exploiting tar's tendency to ignore hidden dot files, e.g., .gnome.

hello All,

  Has anyone attempted to reinstall gnome? After upgrading from an K12LTSP
4.4.1 to 5.0 server the gnome enviornment is hosed. I should have done a
fresh install,,I know. When logging into Gnome I get about 3-4 errors. "
gnome settings daemon could not start", followed by about 3
bonobo-activation server errors. Even the console login is scrambled a
bit :( the login box is there , but,  the text is scrambled on it.I can
log into KDE & Icewm fine ( at a terminal)which is strange?Trying to
login into the console I get the same errors as seen at a terminal Gnome
login. Ive found the possible fix being
 ' /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon --sync ' but when running this I
simply get a return of " Segmentaion fault" . I'm wondering if possibly
the RAID drive(S) may be scrambled? I dont think so beings KDE & Icewm
works alright?

Any Ideas?
