kdm doesn't work
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:59 EDT
Description of Problem:
Kdm doesn't work at all.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install system with KDE as default desktop environment.
2. Try to log on as root (or anyone).
Session is not started. Login prompt appears again.
Worked not very long ago.
Just tried kdebase-3.0.0-0.cvs20020307.1: kdm worked in that package, so the
broken change was introduced since then.
Still happens with kdebase-3.0.0-0.cvs20020314.3.
No, it doesn't, but the *@'$% "rpm can't replace a directory with a symlink" bug is
preventing the fixed files from installing correctly.
I just did a clean install (with kdebase-3.0.0-0.cvs20020314.3) and kdm doesn't
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.
Ok, found a way to reproduce this... Does it go away if you pick the "kde" instead of
"default" session for you as well?
Yes, picking 'kde' makes it work.
Fixed in .4
Where can I get the new RPM's as they seem not to available through rh.rh.com?
