Description Mr. Berkley Shands 2000-08-23 15:20:46 EDT
Using high resolution 1600x1200 resolution on an all-in-wonder-128 (32mb)
hangs kde at login time. 8bit/16bit/32bit shows the same problem.
1280x1024 does not.

after the login (xdm process) goes away, most of the time the
radio-box and progress slider popup comes up. the 
slider sticks at 83% and never gets past that.
This is an initial login for "root". Subsequent login attempts
either it does not get that far, or it fails to get past 83%.
I tried the lower resolution, and was able to login the second try.
I used <ctrl><alt><backspace> to kill the Xserver each time.
I rebooted for the 1280x1024 try.
kde still won't save my workspace config though, but thats another bug.

I'm using a p3-600 768mb aha2940u2w 9gbLVD, an all-in-wonder 128 with 32mb.
it also does not seem to matter if I boot linux-2.4.0-test6 or
kde is sick on login :-(

Comment 1 Mr. Berkley Shands 2000-08-25 11:06:16 EDT
I find that if I "rm -rf /.kde*" then I can proceed normally.
A change from 6.2 is that other processes (like xterm's) launched do not return
after a logout/login sequence.

I also noted that

the authdir directory did not exist. I created it, and things are a bit happier.

kde was badly broken for the beta but was fixed for final.
