Dear lazyweb, I’ve successfully built GNOME 3.2 using jhbuild (on Fedora 15), I’ve done all the dbus hackery suggested in the jhbuild manual, but I still can’t run it, either in Xephyr or from the login screen.
In all cases, the problem seems to be:
GConf Error: Configuration server couldn't be contacted: D-BUS error: Method "GetDefaultDatabase" with signature "" on interface "org.gnome.GConf.Server" doesn't exist
which is thrown in my face a dozen or so times before it dies. Google turns up nothing similar. Any helpful hints?
(Yes, I could just install the F16 alpha, but that doesn’t work sensibly in VirtualBox as yet…)
