I've just installed gnome-2.30 in my system and I see my actual desktop
settings are causing my session to fail. What I see is my desktop's
icons (which worked fine from ages, I'm keeping my settings from
previous gnome releases) dissapearing and being redrawn over and over.
I installed with no ports at all before installing gnome-2.30, this is
because I tried the marcuscom version before and when I did installed
from marcuscom repository I saw the same behaviour.
I decided to use a blank new user and this behaviour dissapears. So then
I decided to import the same set of icons that gives me headaches. That
set fails. Going to gnome-look.org and picking a random and quite new
set of icons (say, first of May) will cause this with a high probability
(there are some that work).
I see in my dmesg messages like this :
pid 59579 (gtk-update-icon-cac), uid 0, was killed: out of swap space
when the problem gets triggered. So I unpacked a problematic gnome icon
set and cd'ed into the resulting directory, tried by hand :
# gtk-update-icon-cache -f
causing the problem to appear once again. So it appears the culprit
could be gtk2.20.
I can tell which icon sets I tried. My system is :
FreeBSD gusiport 8.0-STABLE FreeBSD 8.0-STABLE #0: Sun May 9 07:09:12

Working with ZFS. Any idea ?
