failed to load external entity "/root/.gnome2/gedit-metadata.xml


Can you tell me what this means and why is it happening

[root@dabooster grub]# gedit grub.conf
warning: failed to load external entity "/root/.gnome2/gedit-metadata.xml"
Segmentation fault
[root@dabooster grub]#


Thanks

What happens if you just type "gedit" ? If it does the same thing then copy the file "gedit-metadate.xml" from the normal user account to the root account. That is, if it runs with a normal user.

Could you please put a title to your thread which says what problem you have, not just 'Help', it will help people help you.

Alright then, copy the file /home/your user name/gedit-metadata.xml to /root.
That is if you can edit other files with gedit as a normal user.

Thanks
There is a need to fix the boot loader configuration(Grub), and Segmentation fault is a memory allocation problem.. but hey - I'm just learning this too

Malique, a reboot should fix a mem error. If it doesn't try the file copying thing.
