GNOME 2.6 and /dev/pmu

Hi all,

I'm writing to this list since I know some of you are already using
GNOME 2.6 from experimental on your PPC machines.

Well, I made the upgrade today, and everything's working fine, except
that everytime I log in GNOME, I get a dialog box saying : "permissions
on /dev/pmu are broken". Permissions are set as follows :

$ ls -l /dev/pmu
crw-------    1 root     root      10, 154 2004-04-14 16:48 /dev/pmu

I'm using GNOME up-to-date, kernel 2.4.25-ben1, gdm to log, and
pbbuttonsd up-to-date. In fact, I didn't get this message in GNOME 2.4,
and I don't see any problem in 2.6 so far. I'd just like to know why I
get this error message.

Thanks for your help.
