Not a single problem when I installed the gnome2 metaport on FreeBSD-4.6-RC built on May 18th, but whenever I try to start gnome-session, I get the following from bug-buddy:
Backtrace was generated from '/usr/X11R6/bin/gnome-session'
Is it actually crashing? What signal is gnome-session exiting on? sobomax found that without scalable fonts installed, GNOME 2 crashed all over the place. Make sure you have all the X fonts installed, and that all the font types are loaded in your XF86Config file.
The GNOME Session Manager (process 262) has crashed due to a fatal error (Segmentation fault).
XFree86-fontScalable-4.2.0 port is installed, FontPath statements are in place in /etc/X11/XF86Config. Will check the logs to make sure there were no errors initializing the font paths.
Also tried running gdm from /etc/ttys, but the interface hangs after any user input. Any ideas why this might be happening?
This seems to be a popular complaint. I never encountered it since I always start gdm from an rc script from /usr/X11R6/etc/rc.d. A new GNOME 2 snapshot is out, and I will be working on the update. Perhaps the new gdm2 will alleviate this problem.
This is with the gdm2-126.96.36.199 port. All I did was install the /usr/ports/x11/gnome2 metaport. Starting gdm2 from an rc script doesnt work either, all I get is the screen you would get if you started X without a window manager.
When you rebuild world, do you also rebuild libc_r?
I would assume so because I rebuilt the world on Saturday: # ls -la /usr/lib/libc_r* -r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 1474534 Jun 8 12:34 /usr/lib/libc_r.a lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 11 Jun 8 12:34 /usr/lib/libc_r.so -> libc_r.so.4 -r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 683096 Jun 8 12:34 /usr/lib/libc_r.so.4 -r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 1599552 Jun 8 12:34 /usr/lib/libc_r_p.a
Maybe this is a problem? # grep fonts XFree86.0.log (WW) `fonts.dir' not found (or not valid) in "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/PEX". (Run 'mkfontdir' on "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/PEX").

Let me resolve that and see if it helps. Thanks for your time,
Resolved the above issues with the FontPaths, as far as I can tell, the scalable fonts are installed and usable. gnome-session still crashes with the same errors as before. Any ideas?
No. I'm not seeing this problem after updating to the latest GNOME 2. Can you try removing all your GNOME 2 settings, and see if the problem persists?
