yast2 error (gconf) "Failed to get connection to session"

I ran yast2 in console, and here is what I logged: (I did an upgrade from Suse 11 -> 11.1, FYI)

Failed to get value for `/schemas/apps/metacity/general/num_workspaces’: 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 GConf configuration system for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)

Make sure you have no old 11.0 repo’s enabled.

Do as su in konsole

rpmdb --rebuilddb

zypper refresh

*Now try yast
