How to fix those errors /var/log/messages

Hi
After almost fresh installation I found that I have some errors, Apache wont start, some avahi-daemon warning, and others

Code: Select all

my rc.d has

mysql_enable="YES"

#syslogd_enable="NO"
#syslog_ng_enable="YES"

hald_enable="YES"
dbus_enable="YES"

gnome_enable="YES"
natd_enable="YES"


If you can show me some clue, what can cause that problems, I'll appreciated it.
Thanks

What is the contents of this file? It should be a XML file located in /usr/local/share/applications/
If you can't find it, try:
[cmd=#]find /usr/local -name at-spi-registryd-wrapper\\.desktop[/cmd]

Jun 11 01:57:55 hostname gdm-simple-greeter[1516]: Gtk-WARNING: gtkwidget.c:5628: widget not within a GtkWindow


This is a warning and not an error, this is actually a programming fault and not a configuration fault. Ignore it.

Jun 11 01:58:02 hostname gnome-keyring-daemon[1530]: couldn't allocate secure memory to keep passwords and or keys from being written to the disk


This is a warning, not an error (Meaning the program will continue). What the warning means should be self-explanatory.
Here is some info: http://www.daemonforums.org/showthread.php?p=4395
google also seems to offer some information:
http://www.google.com/search?client=opera&rls=en&q=couldn't+allocate+secure+memory+to+keep+passwords+and+or+keys+from+being+written+to+the+disk&sourceid=opera&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8


The rest of the errors in the logfile you posted are from pulseaudio, to be honest, I know nothing about it, but it shoudn't prevent Gnome from working. And it has even less to do with Apache. Actually, none of these errors have anything to do with apache.
Maybe the Apache error log has some info on that? IIRC it should be /var/log/httpd/error.log

Gnome is working so far ok, I am wonder if apache22 has some issue with hostname, I have
Code: Select all
/etc/hosts
....
127.0.0.1               localhost hostname.inside


and
Code: Select all
/usr/local/etc/apache22/httpd.conf
....
ServerName hostname.inside


and I am thinking that can be cause by
Code: Select all
hostname avahi-daemon[1286]: WARNING: No NSS support for mDNS detected, consider installing nss-mdns!

but looking through many forums and posts I cant find solution how to get rid of that WARNING

even I do start and stop Avahi-daemon I have
Code: Select all
hostname # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/avahi-daemon stop
Stopping avahi-daemon.
hostname # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/avahi-daemon start
Starting avahi-daemon.

and in messages logs
Code: Select all
avahi-dnsconfd[1291]: read(): EOF

Try commenting out mod_unique_id in your httpd.conf, I can remember having problems with that and your logs certainly seem to indicate the same problems.

There is also the problem of the timezone not being set in your php.ini, for reasons not completely clear to me PHP 5.3 seems to require this.

You can set it with:
Code: Select all
[Date]
; Defines the default timezone used by the date functions
date.timezone = UTC


Be sure to change UTC to your timezone!


and I am thinking that can be cause by
hostname avahi-daemon[1286]: WARNING: No NSS support for mDNS detected, consider installing nss-mdns!
but looking through many forums and posts I cant find solution how to get rid of that WARNING


Well, the suggestion in this warning is installing nss-mdns. A search of the port tree reveals ... [port]dns/nss_mdns[/port]. This certainly seems a good place to start ;)
I'm fairly sure it's not the problem with Apache though.

I solve apache22 error
I has to type the same hostname name in /etc/hosts and /usr/local/etc/apache22/httpd.conf file
I has hostname="hostname" in /etc/hosts and it should be the same in every file "hostname.inside" - I just forgot .inside -> should be full domain name, not only hostname,

but still
Code: Select all
Jun 15 00:10:33 hostname avahi-daemon[1286]: WARNING: No NSS support for mDNS detected, consider installing nss-mdns!


And I have installed /usr/ports/dns/nss_mdns/
after installation using [CMD="#"]make install clean[/CMD]
I checking it
Code: Select all
# pkg_info | grep 'nss_mdns'
nss_mdns-0.10_1     NSS module implementing multicast DNS name resolution


So no idea how to get rid of that warning.

Those few last warning from Gnome,
Code: Select all
gnome-session[1527]: WARNING: Could not launch application 'at-spi-registryd-wrapper.desktop':

Code: Select all
gdm-simple-greeter[1543]: Gtk-WARNING: gtkwidget.c:5628: widget not within a GtkWindow

Code: Select all
gnome-keyring-daemon[1569]: couldn't allocate secure memory to keep passwords and or keys from being

Code: Select all
pulseaudio[1609]: module.c: module-detect is deprecated: Please use module-udev-detect instead of modu$
pulseaudio[1609]: module-detect.c: failed to detect any sound hardware.

no idea either so far still looking.
I will keep you posted maybe someone has similar warning :)

I just upgraded to Gnome 2.30.1 and while Gnome 2.30.1 seems to work fine and perhaps better than 2.28.1, I too get these in /var/log/messages at startup:

Code: Select all
gnome-session[1561]: WARNING: Could not launch application 'at-spi-registryd-wrapper.desktop': Unable to start application: Failed to execute
child process "${exec_prefix}/libexec/at-spi-registryd" (No such file or directory)
gnome-session[1561]: Bonobo-WARNING: Bonobo must be initialized before use
gdm-simple-greeter[1579]: Bonobo-WARNING: Bonobo must be initialized before use
gdm-simple-greeter[1579]: Gtk-WARNING: gtkwidget.c:5628: widget not within a GtkWindow


Both at-spi-registryd-wrapper.desktop and at-spi-registryd exist where they are supposed to be. My system is AMD64 8.0-RELEASE. I have searched the forums for Bonobo but I cannot find anything relevant. Maybe this is just specific to me. Any help appreciated. I hope my two cents is worth something here.
