1-2 weeks ago I've installed Fedora 14 on 2 machines. One (64bit) is OK with respect to gnome-panel, but on the second one (32bit) I have a strange problem.
KDE is OK, but when I start Gnome, I see no gnome panel.
ps -ea | grep gnome-panel
displays that it is running.
When I kill it, it does re-spawn.
But no gnome panel bar is visible (neither the top menu, nor the bottom taskbar). Alt+F2 pops up the "Run application dialogue"
Both machines are updated by "yum update".
Gnome panel package version is gnome-panel-126.96.36.199-2.fc14.i686.
On the affected machine, I have moved my /home data from simple subdir on / partition to a dedicated partition (/home is a logical volume on to of RAID1):
mount | grep home
/dev/mapper/vg_md2-lv_home on /home type ext3 (rw)
gvfs-fuse-daemon on /home/martin/.gvfs type fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon (rw,nosuid,nodev,user=username)
Similar setup I have on the "working" 64bit machine (though at the moment the RAID1 is degraded to just one physical disk there... but that should not be the issue)
At the time of moving the /home, there was just one user account. Later, after moving /home, I've created 2 more and all of them have the same problem with gnome.
Could this be a selinux + ~/.gvfs issue?
selinux context for .gvfs is same as at the machine which has no issues:
ls -aZ ~ | grep .gvfs
dr-x------. username username system_u:object_r:fusefs_t:s0 .gvfs
Any other suggestions?
