Default gconfd-2 woes

greets,

today I wanted to be clever and ran "emerge -e gnome" to rebuild all my
gnome-3 desktop.

Unfortunately things didn't get better from this.

I can hardly logon, gconfd-2 produces high load and
/var/lib/gdm/.gconfd/saved_state grows quickly to around 4 GB until it
fills the disk :-(

I removed that file while gdm was not running, no matter, it got created
again ...

So right now I have no desktop on my desktop, writing this from the
thinkpad.

Could someone point me at how to start debugging this?

I already rebuilt gdm, gconf, gnome-session ... revdep-rebuild shows
nothing, dispatch-conf either

Thanks, Stefan

addon: it seems full of pulseaudio-related lines ... maybe I should
rebuild that one now as well

Or delete it If that doesn't work I would start by creating a new test
user account and run gnome-3 from there. The problem may be caused by one
of the zillion gnome config files in your home directory.

You can remove /var/lib/gdm, and reemerge gdm. It usually works for me.

The problem starts even before I log in!

that helped a bit .... the saved_state file now peaks at around 500 MB
... but the shell(?) crashes again.

I see lots of:

gconfd-2[18280] general protection ip:7f24944dfa5f sp:7fffc4f6bfe8
error:0 in libc-2.14.1.so[7f24943c7000+181000]


in "dmesg".

As mentioned, gconf has been rebuilt already.

I also didn't change anything in terms of (un)masking stuff when I
re-emerged gnome today.

restarted xdm, saved_state grows again, and this is *before* I even get
the login.

sure, I rebuilt glibc now and gconf after that.
Still same symptoms :-(

I solved it halfways by:

quickpkg gconf on my thinkpad
mv it over and emerge it on the problematic machine

re-emerge gvfs
removing saved_state files (in /var/lib/gdm/.gconfd and ~/.gconfd)

right now the gnome-session is UP

If I re-emerge gconf here I get the same crashes and protection errors.

So I will keep it this way for now.

I wanted to get rid of any hidden problems with my "emerge -e gnome"
yesterday. Didn't work out as expected.

greets, Stefan
