That's strange because it works for me and many others on F9 x86_64.
Comment 2 Victor Lorenz 2008-09-10 20:03:22 EDT
Googled the issue amd found that identical problem happened with Kubuntu e.g.

Perhaps, unwisely, I tried what I thought might be same solution i.e delete./kde (maybe should have deleted .kde/share/kde4).  KDE 4.1 now opens but obviously did some, but surprising little, damage, mainly to kmail. Can copy some stuff from .kde.BAK but obviously this is not optimal solution to problem.

I had exactly the same problem after the update of Sept. 10.
