New gdm keeps restarting after upgrade to edgy
I can't figure out what conditions are triggering it so I'm trying to post this as quickly as possible before I lose my session again. gdm keeps restarting. If I launch Firefox, use 'less' to view the syslog, or just wait long enough gdm restarts. When it happens, I can't switch to one of the lower terminals (TTY2-6) to work on it, I have to log in.

Last few lines in the syslog before it restarts are talking about gconf trying to load defaults, and cron.hourly trying to fire. Anyone heard of this I'd appreciate a pointer.

New Does this help?
[link|http://www.vishalarya.net/?p=229|Vishalarya]. I found it via [link|http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=2426448|this] which was found via [link|http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&rlz=1B3GGGL_enUS219&q=gdm+crashes+ubuntu&btnG=Search|this search].

HTH a bit. Good luck!

Cheers,
Scott.
New Nope, saw that one
I've seen a couple of threads saying the behavior started with recent xorg updates, but none of the suggestions there worked.

It looks to me like every time an application tries to save state is when it breaks. ie: Move or resize a window and gdm restarts. Then I can't use that app any more. For instance Galeon is still working, but I'm afraid to resize it. Firefox hasn't worked since the first time I maximized it after the upgrade.

Guess I'll keep researching and trying things. I really don't want to un/re-install X and Gnome to fix this.

New You've been fighting things like this for months. :-(
You're still having issues from [link|http://z.iwethey.org/forums/render/content/show?contentid=270866|#270866]?

Would you save time by starting over with a clean Feisty install? :-(

I think part of the reason why you can't find solutions to these problems is that few people encounter them - or if they do they give up and reinstall.

Sorry, I don't mean a downer. Good luck!

Cheers,
Scott.

Plumbing is not coding. There is no concept of rolling back the previously saved version of the house.
