Okay, this is annoying, I have just gotten my system to boot after a painful upgrade of gnome. Everything seemed to be working fine, it was booting fine and everything. But for some reason, I now am getting the following error when trying to manually start GDM after it fails at boot:
Code:

# gdm start

** (gdm:3655): WARNING **: Failed to acquire org.gnome.DisplayManager

** (gdm:3655): WARNING **: Could not acquire name; bailing out


I have tried several things, including the steps laid out here: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-818538.htm
Nothing seems to be working. I have a feeling that the problems are a result of running some packages with ~ keywords. So I guess what I am asking is if there is anyone who would help me run these packages down and return to a (mostly) stable environment? I am happy to post my /etc/portage/package.keywords; accept.keywords info when needed. I do understand that this may be an unrelated issue, but this still needs to be done. I have run etc-update, and revdep-rebuild after every update, and still nothing. I have also run emerge -lav gdm, and still nothing. I am sorry that I ever started mixing testing versions with stable with the gnome stuff, it's turned out to be a huge pain.

I really really appreciate all the help I can get.

Thanks

Todd

I get errors like that when stuff is trying to start twice.
Check if it is running already
Code:
ps -ef |grep gdm

Just a thought

I was in update hell as well last week after upgrading glibc and gcc to 4.6 tree. I had and still have some problem with the current combination of glibc-2.15, gcc-4.6.3 and some of the programs. One program that failed with the new glibc was gconfd in its stable version. After upgrading to the latest unstable version of gconfd, my gnome desktop start again, but some minor problems exists. If you have the same problem, you should see general protection faults from glibc in you /var/log/everything/current.

Okay, I entered the command and it returned the following:
Code:

# ps -ef |grep gdm
root      2157     1  0 07:47 ?        00:00:00 /usr/bin/gdm
root      2331  2326  0 07:48 pts/0    00:00:00 grep --colour=auto gdm


Does that mean that it is trying to start twice? If so, what do I need to do to stop that? If not, what should be the next course?

Thanks, I really appreciate your help!!

I do remember upgrading glibc and gcc to 4.6 tree as well. The weird thing is I was already running the most current unstable version of gnome-base/gconf. I removed the keywords, re-emerged and it's still not working with the same error. Also, I don't have a /var/log/everything/current. not sure if that is wrong, or what, but here are the contents of my /var/log directory:
Code:

# ls /var/log/

Yes it has already started.
Are you in the VT that you configured it to start in?[/code]

I would kill off the process and restart it perhaps.
Code:
kill  2157
or whatever pid it gives you.

Actually, I'm getting closer, it's something to do with x11-drivers/xf86-video-radeonhd.

I get an error message when trying to emerge this package.
Code:

# emerge -1 $(qlist -IC x11-drivers)
Calculating dependencies... done!

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "x11-drivers/xf86-video-radeonhd".

Does anyone know what has happened to this? Is it no longer in portage? If not, is there a suitable replacement? I appreciate any input I can get!!

Thanks

From here;
Quote:
Status 09/2010: Linux distributions, including Novell's openSUSE, have now abandoned radeonhd as the default driver, instead using the radeon driver. radeon has more features, including Kernel Mode-Setting support and more 3D support, and it supports all Radeon generation from original R100 Radeons to R800 Radeons (HD 5000 series). Radeonhd can be continued to be updated as long as there are people find it useful.

You can switch to;
Code:
x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-6.14.6-r1

It's the current, (radeon), driver. Make sure you /etc/make.conf has the line;
Code:
VIDEO_CARDS="radeon"

and an update to your world, should automatically install the correct driver.

Good Luck..

Thanks so much for your help, however, I have run into even more problems with this. Apparently, both the drivers were installed, so I removed radeonhd. When I tried to re-emerge video-ati, I get the following failure:
Code:

# emerge -lav x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

I can post more if more is needed, but I'm not sure what to do about this failure, and due to it, X refuses to start.

Thanks so much for all your help!

todd93,

Try to emerge the latest - x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-6.14.6-r1 rather than replacing x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-6.14.4-r1

Okay, back in business!! I would like to thank you all for the input and help here on this issue! There were a number of things that caused my problem here. First was a python issue, which I was able to clear up, and second was the video-ati drivers. I cleared that up with keywords. Rebooted and here we are. Thanks to everyone so much!!
