Description Rex Dieter 2008-06-26 21:04:48 EDT
startkde contains references to lnusertemp, and

$ kde4-config --path exe --locate lnusertemp

$ rpm -q -f /usr/bin/lnusertemp

I moved that out of the way, and the kde4-config call finds nothing

$ mv  /usr/bin/lnusertemp  /usr/bin/lnusertemp.kde3
$ kde4-config --path exe --locate lnusertemp

Net result is that kde4 session fails to start if kdelibs3 isn't installed.
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2008-06-26 21:08:58 EDT
$ kde4-config --path exe 

no /usr/libexec ?
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-26 21:16:27 EDT
With kdelibs-4.0.5-2.fc9, I get:
Likewise kdelibs4-4.0.5-2.fc8. So this sounds like a regression in our KDE 4.1 
packages. (Rex is using 4.0.83.)

Still the order is bad, /usr/libexec/kde4 should come first, this sounds like 
fallout from the kstandarddirs patch.
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-26 21:25:15 EDT
The ordering issue on F9 can probably be fixed by changing:
if (strcmp("config", type))
if (strcmp("config", type) && strcmp("exe", type))
if (!strcmp("config", type))
if (!strcmp("config", type) || !strcmp("exe", type))
in the kstandarddirs patch.

The KDE 4.1 issue sounds different.
Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-26 21:58:47 EDT
Different, but related, it turns out this upstream kstandarddirs change is to

Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-26 22:31:10 EDT
I can confirm that the ordering issue is fixed in kdelibs-4.0.5-4.fc9. Rex 
confirms 4.0.83-3.fc10 is good as well (/usr/libexec/kde4 is listed and in the 
correct order).

F8 kdelibs4 build here:
