GConf tries to load a config file from hardcoded directory "/etc/gconf"

Description

Whenever I run gconftool to query the GConf database, I get a warning about a non-existent config file in "/etc/gconf":

$ gconftool-2 --get  /desktop/gnome/interface/icon_theme

(gconftool-2:64815): GConf-WARNING **: Failed to load source "xml:readonly:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.system": Failed: Could not make directory `/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.system': No such file or directory

Looking at the source, this appears to be quite deliberate. Per-instance config files are read from ${prefix}/etc and per-machine from /etc, much like MySQL does with my.cnf for example.

Replying to jmr@…:

So is the warning really necessary then? It just adds noise to the queries.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

Closing, as this appears to be an upstream issue and the port currently has no maintainer.
