    Default CORBA ORBit failure when starting Firefox


    Hello,

    openSUSE 11.1
    KDE 3.5.10

    Below is an error I get after starting Firefox.


    Code:
    --------------------
    Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/ for information. (Details - 1: Server ping error: IDLmg.org/CORBA/COMM_FAILURE:1.0)
    --------------------


    Steps I already took:
    1. I thought that my .mozilla directory may be the cause so I moved my
    .mozilla directory to "backup.mozilla". Then restarted Firefox and
    Firefox created a new .mozilla directory. But, the error message still
    popped up.

    2. I also searched Google for stale NFS locks, CORBA, Orbit, and enable
    TCP/IP networking for ORBit. The results I found indicated I should
    remove my /tmp files.
    So, as root, I deleted my /tmp files. But, I still got that same error
    listed in the code above.
    A positive thing that happened after deleting my /tmp files was that
    Flash worked again in Firefox.

    3. Next I decided to search for CORBA in the add/remove software
    applet. The result of the search for CORBA returned ORBit. So, I
    thought I'd delete ORBit. But there was a "Conflict Resolution" window
    that popped up indicating actions which will be done if I decided to
    delete ORBit. This included the deinstallation of more than 100
    packages including (full name of package not shown below):
    Thunderbird
    yast2-control-center-gnome
    orbit2
    gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good
    gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base
    gnome-spell2
    OpenOffice-org-writer
    OpenOffice-org-base
    python-compizvonfig
    compiz-kde...

    I'd like to know if there is another option other than deinstallation
    of ORBit. So, I decided to post my question on this forum.

    If anyone has any suggestions I'd appreciate them.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Nevermind.

    After rebooting PC the error was gone.
