automatically running KDE 3.1.4
I can see by the many other posts on the subject that this has caused a lot of bother but all I want is for KDE to start right.
I stupidly tried to install some new software (xine 0.99xxxx) and ended up
having to reinstall most of KDE as it all got removed - no exaggeration.
The system will come up fine and log me in automatically, it just won't start the KDE gui. I know that I can run startkde (and this works) and I know I could add "exec startkde" to a bunch of other files but what I want is
my system back the way it was, ie select Kernel at LILO screen and then
commence work, not start issuing commands to get where I want to go.
System is Mandrake 9.2 and KDE is KDE 3.1

Obviously there is some file somewhere which controls this behaviour
and it's none of the usual .xinitrc, .xsession etc.
Help would be greatly appreciated as it's really beginning to
