Problem

When starting Gnome, I receive an error message:

The Application "resapplet" has quit unexpectedly

Solution

Since I don't plan on switching resolution, I just removed resapplet with YaST.

Googling for an answer only gives me one hit of the same problem, no solution.

Doing a YaST online update doesn't help either.

Starting resapplet from the console gives me these errors:

$> resapplet

ALSA lib confmisc.c:672:(snd_func_card_driver) cannot find card '0'

Searching in YaST for randr I found this information about resapplet:

resapplet - resolution switching applet

Resapplet is a simple utility that sits in the system notification area and 
allows user switching of their resolution and refresh rate. It uses the xrandr
extensions to switch the resolution on-the-fly and userE resolution preferences
to save the resolution. It works in both GNOME and KDE, as it uses the system
notification area.

Doing a grep -i randr /var/log/XFree86.0.log it seem RandR is installed just fine(?):

(**) Option "RandR" "on"
(**) RandR enabled
(II) Initializing built-in extension RANDR

Since I don't plan on switching resolution, I just removed resapplet with YaST.
