Description James Manning 2002-07-11 16:09:17 UTC
fresh limbo install, nothing GNOME selected from the packages, all KDE stuff
except KDE devel selected

1) no firstboot nothing stuff ever run

2) kdm has "gnome" as an option (bad, bad, bad)

3) KDE doesn't even come up! (just logged into kdm as root and had kde as the
session selection)

.xsession-errors contains only 2 lines:

iceauth:  creating new authority file /root/.ICEauthority
DCOPServer up and running.

ps shows kdm ran X fine, startkde running, etc. - i'll attach the ps auxwww
output and an sshot of the screen (hasn't changed in 5 minutes).  CPU is 99%
idle, so I don't think it's waiting on something to complete.

Comment 3 James Manning 2002-07-11 16:14:13 UTC
um, well, the ps worked fine but for some  (X bug?) reason the import -window
root gave an awfully strange result.  The screen, though, is basically X just
after it started - the black X shaped cursor, the gray background (not solid
gray, that crosshatch thingy pattern)

Comment 4 James Manning 2002-07-11 18:58:53 UTC
ok, it looks like firstboot does indeed run and does the empty/fresh X on :0 and
then kdm starts on :1 - that was confusing me.

firstboot gives a stacktrace, which I'll attach

Yep, it's a dupe of #68504.  Should be fixed now.
