IPC problem


Hi all,

Sorry to post from Windoze, but I must.

I boot with lilo in text mode and log in to a command prompt. Then I start X, and get the message:

"There was an error setting up inter-process communications for KDE. The message returned by the system was:

Could not read network connection list:

/home/mike/.DCOPserver_localhost__0

Please check that the 'dcopserver' program is running!"

This happens when I try to start X as both root/admin and regular user. I don't think the system was shut down uncleanly. The hard drive has no bad sectors. Should I run e2fsck (my machines are all ext3)? I thought the network connection list was created on bootup, but maybe not.

There is a page at wiki.linuxquestions.org that gives some information, and suggests copying this file from another user, while that user is logged in. I don't have any users with access to X, so this won't work for me, but I do have a previous install of Mandriva 2006 on another hard disk.

Think I can drop this file into place on my current Mandriva install? Should I create another user (as admin) from the command prompt, and use that user's .DCOPserver file?

Should I do a urpmi to replace some possibly damaged RPMs?

And where can I get more documentation on IPC?

P.S. I am using the original 2.6.12-12 kernel. But I am a home user, behind a router, I'm safe.

Thanks in advance

IPC problem

Okay,

I'm posting from my backup system. The .DCOPserver file is created when KDE starts. I copied it to a FAT partition. I'll copy it to my main linux installation in a few minutes.

Is this going to work? Any ideas?

If DCOPserver is a daemon or other process, where do I go to make sure it is running? Is there an rc file that got corrupted? If not, perhaps this could this be fixed by using urpmi on some rpm file? I'm kind of in the dark here. Any help, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated.

Fixed (kind of)

Hi all,

Okay, I backed up /home/mike and /dnload and created a floppy that will do an identical install to what I used to have.

I reinstalled, got the new Office 2.0.3 in place, and right now I'm removing the backup copy of /home/mike and /dnload.

It would be nice though, if anyone has more information about DCOPserver and inter-process communication in KDE, please post a link.

Thanks to everyone.
