Description of problem:
after a standard red hat 8.0 install i asked the package manager to add KDE.
once done, i log out and try to launch KDE : says dcopserver doesn't read a
file.. try rebooting, no change

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install red hat 8.0 default install
2. add kde using the package manager
3. try to log in KDE

Actual Results:  when trying to launch KDE after its install, a window appears
and says :

There was an error setting up inter-process communications for KDE.
The error message..

Could not read network connection list,
Please check that dcopserver is running

That dcopserver is running. It is active and running in the processes list. I
launched it and it says "up and running". I also sent a kill -HUP signal. No change.

The file doesn't seem to have the proper name. It says:
I tried renaming it .DCOPserver_glinux__0 but I still get the same error message.

I rebooted. Tried again, no change.
Cannot launch KDE...

Expected Results:  KDE should have launched.

Additional info:

The machine received a clean Red Hat 8.0 default install.
After one week of use, i added KDE using the package manager,
clicking on the "KDE" group stuff. After asking me for CD 2
and installing all KDE files (it seems) I loggued out and I
can't log in onto KDE. Restarting doesn't correct this. I have
also checked "services" thing but I see no dcopserver thingie there
so it should be working per defautl and properly ;)
