Just tried kdebase-3.0.0-0.cvs20020307.1: kdm worked in that package, so the
broken change was introduced since then.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2002-03-18 19:11:26 EST
Still happens with kdebase-3.0.0-0.cvs20020314.3.
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-03-19 09:55:11 EST
No, it doesn't, but the *@'$% "rpm can't replace a directory with a symlink" bug is 
preventing the fixed files from installing correctly.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2002-03-19 11:18:24 EST
I just did a clean install (with kdebase-3.0.0-0.cvs20020314.3) and kdm doesn't
Comment 5 Ngo Than 2002-03-19 11:56:30 EST
Could you please check if a symlink /usr/share/config/kdm -> 
../../../etc/kde/kdm does exist on your machine? 
Please send the /etc/kde/kdm/Xstartup. 
Comment 6 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-03-19 12:21:06 EST
Ok, found a way to reproduce this... Does it go away if you pick the "kde" instead of 
"default" session for you as well? 
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2002-03-19 12:27:39 EST
Yes, picking 'kde' makes it work.
Comment 8 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-03-20 11:04:03 EST
Fixed in .4 
Comment 9 Holger Eilhard 2002-03-22 07:29:07 EST
Where can I get the new RPM's as they seem not to available through rh.rh.com?
