How do you start KDE, from gdm/kdm or directly fron console?

Could you please attach the file $HOME/.xsession-errors and backtrace of KDE

I have found the bug, It's in Battery Management program, When I start
up kde login as other persion not as root, kde can start up, but
battery management program hint me that battery power is over. but my
battery power is full, When I remove Battery manager from panel, then
kde can start up when I login as root.

If you can, please re-test with Fedora Core 3. It is very well possible the bug 
was fixed upstream in the meantime. Also, logging in as root into X is not 
exactly the best idea.

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.

Closing as CANTFIX.
