WARNING: Failed to acquire org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit

Hello,

I recently allowed a bunch of updates on openSuSE 11.0 and now I am getting this error in my messages log:

Mar 29 21:20:35 neutrino console-kit-daemon[21807]: WARNING: Failed to acquire org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit
Mar 29 21:20:35 neutrino console-kit-daemon[21807]: WARNING: Could not acquire name; will retry

Unfortunately I let far too many updates occur at once (something I won’t do again) to know where this error came from.

Additionally, my server is under high load as you can see from this “top” list (2 out of the 4 cores of the CPU are running at 100%):

Mem: 4060944k total, 3475240k used, 585704k free, 590192k buffers
Swap: 0k total, 0k used, 0k free, 621632k cached

Any help greatly appreciated! as although I am starting to become competent in using Linux I have a long way to go before I’m any good at troubleshooting on it.

Reg.

I am having the exact same problem. Log filling up, repeated messages every second, two messages.

‘Could not Aquire Name; Will Retry’ … and ‘Failed to acquire org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit’

Is there a resolution?
Thanks in advance.
