I recently upgraded to Slackware 10.1 and the 2.6 kernel (from 10.0 and 2.4) and after I did this I have been having a problem. Whenever I try to download a file and use an application to open it (such as fileroller or Gnome PDF viewer it seems to open fine (though file roller doesn't extract correctly) but I get this error...
Failed to contact configuration server;
some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit,
or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash.
See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/ for information.
(Details - 1: IOR file '/tmp/gconfd-fincher/lock/ior' not opened successfully,
no gconfd located: No such file or directory
2: IOR file '/tmp/gconfd-fincher/lock/ior' not opened successfully,
no gconfd located: No such file or directory)
So I went to the mentioned website and downloaded GConf but when I try to install it I get this during configuration..
checking for gmodule-2.0 >= 2.0.1 gobject-2.0 >= 2.0.1 ORBit-2.0 >= 2.4.0 linc >= 0.5.0...
Package linc was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `linc.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'linc' found
Library requirements (gmodule-2.0 >= 2.0.1 gobject-2.0 >= 2.0.1 ORBit-2.0 >= 2.4.0 linc >= 0.5.0) not met;
consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a
nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
but I am not exactly sure how to go about fixing this problem. Thanks for any suggestions.
