Description Don Zickus 2009-06-12 14:14:55 EDT
Description of problem:
I have the latest F-11 packages and decided to upgrade my kde to the 4.3 beta2 and now I am left with nothing.  No taskbar, no pistachio, no menu when I right-click, nothing but an F-11 wallpaper in the background. :-(

A couple of disclosures:
yes, I realize 4.3 is in beta and is coming from the kde-unstable repo but I don't know where to report these issues, so I am doing so here.  If this is the wrong bugzilla, I apologize.

second, 4.2.85 worked for me (work being relative).  When I moved from 4.2.85 to 4.2.90 and rebooted everything fell apart.

I moved .kde to .kde.bk to start from scratch again but with the same results.

What is interesting is when I run startkde from a vnc session.  I actually get useful log messages (I don't know where kde normal stores broken start up messages).  I have attached them below.

Additional info:
I guess I didn't realize not all the kde packages were upgraded to 4.2.90.  I just assumed if they were put into kde-unstable, everything was done and packaged.

Here is the vnc start log issues:

> kdebase-workspace-4.2.85-4.fc11.i586

That's 4.2.85, the other stuff is 4.2.90. You cought kde-redhat unstable in an inconsistent state. It should be fixed now, please upgrade again.
Comment 2 Don Zickus 2009-06-12 16:47:29 EDT
Ah that makes sense.  Upgrading now.  Will check later when I get home.

Thanks.
