gconf readonly

Jochen Bartl
Hi list.

Since yesterday is my gnome/metacity/... configuration read-only. A lot
of keys in the gconf-editor are set to "<no value>". I have tested the
single-file gconf layout and the old one, but the behaviour is the same.

Here are the gconf relevant parts from my /var/log/user.log:

starting (version 2.12.1), pid 15241 user 'jochen'
Resolved address "xml:readonly:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory" to a
read-only configuration source at position 0
Jan 15 15:30:33 localhost gconfd (jochen-15241): Resolved address
"xml:readwrite:/home/jochen/.gconf" to a writable configuration source
at position 1
Jan 15 15:30:33 localhost gconfd (jochen-15241): Resolved address
"xml:readonly:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults" to a read-only
configuration source at position 2
Jan 15 15:30:33 localhost gconfd (jochen-15241): Resolved address
"xml:readonly:/var/lib/gconf/debian.defaults" to a read-only
configuration source at position 3
Jan 15 15:30:33 localhost gconfd (jochen-15241): Resolved address
"xml:readonly:/var/lib/gconf/defaults" to a read-only configuration
source at position 4
Jan 15 15:30:37 localhost gconfd (jochen-15241): Resolved address
"xml:readwrite:/home/jochen/.gconf" to a writable configuration source
at position 0
Jan 15 15:32:12 localhost gconfd (jochen-15241): Resolved address
"xml::/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults" to a read-only configuration source
at position 0
Jan 15 15:32:12 localhost gconfd (jochen-15241): None of the resolved
addresses are writable; saving configuration settings will not be
possible
Jan 15 15:32:12 localhost gconfd (jochen-15241): Resolved address
"xml::/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory" to a read-only configuration
source at position 0
Jan 15 15:32:12 localhost gconfd (jochen-15241): None of the resolved
addresses are writable; saving configuration settings will not be
possible

The permissions should be ok:

drwx------ 6 jochen jochen 78 Jan 15 16:05 /home/jochen/.gconf
drwx------ 2 jochen jochen 24 Jan 15 16:06 /home/jochen/.gconfd
drwx------ 3 jochen jochen 17 Jan 15 15:30 /tmp/gconfd-jochen/


Some system information:

Debian unstable
gconf2 2.12.1-8
gconf2-common 2.12.1-8
libgconf2-4 2.12.1-8

Please tell me, if I forgot some important information.

best regards,

Jochen
