It started with a bug-fix update to one part of XFree86. After I installed it, my Gnome panel refused to load some applets. As the Gnome desktop opens I get error dialogs like these:
=-=-=-=-= The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_WorkspaceSwitcherApplet". Details: Failed to resolve, or extend '!prefs_key=/apps/panel/profiles/default/applets/applet_0/prefs;background=none:;orient=up;size=medium;locked_down=false Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration? =-=-=-=-= The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_WindowMenuApplet". Details: Failed to resolve, or extend '!prefs_key=/apps/panel/profiles/default/applets/applet_1/prefs;background=none:;orient=up;size=medium;locked_down=false Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration? =-=-=-=-= I ran pkg_version and noticed that all of XFree86 had newer versions, from 4.2 to 4.4. I thought I was out of whack and just needed to update the whole thing. I did portupgrade XFree86, but it failed here: =-=-=-=-= making all in ./xtrans... tbl ../../../doc/util/macros.t Xtrans.mm | groff -Tps -mm 2> index.raw > Xtrans.nPS && mv -f Xtrans.nPS Xtrans.PS Xtrans.mm:699: warning [p 10, 3.2i, div bd7,3', 0.3i]: cannot adjust line *** Error code 1 Stop in /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4-documents/work/xc/doc/specs/xtrans. *** Error code 1 Stop in /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4-documents/work/xc/doc/specs. *** Error code 1 Stop in /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4-documents. *** Error code 1 Stop in /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4. =-=-=-=-= I googled this and found one previous posting in August, but no reply. I updated my ports and 4.10 STABLE source trees and rebuilt my kernel, but that did not help. Does it matter that my sources are on an NFS server and I only mount one at a time (/usr/ports or /usr/src)? Thanks in advance!
