The RENDER messages show your X server can't handle fonts properly. What graphics card are 
you using? NVidia, by any chance?
Comment 3 Eric Doutreleau 2002-02-18 05:58:11 EST
Well it s not an NVIDIA card

It s an ATI 3D Rape PRO AGF
Yje system is an Dell optiplex GXa

Another piece of information

I tried to configure the card with kickstart feature but it doesn't work at
all
The card isn't properly detected.
then i configured "manually" the card

I upgrade the XFree Server to version 4.1.0 with the updated package from
RedHat

Please attach your .kde directory; I need to check it for bad settings.
