KDE locks up Mandrake 9.1


Hello I'm gaining ground,
In Mandrake 9.1 I'm finally able to use Gnome (but must log in as root to get in). How do I (can I) change that to user log in ?
But when I try KDE & MDKKDE it locks the machine up. Then I must restart. I'm most likely over-looking something.
Also where do I find instructions to set up a USR Hardware modem in order to run windows the jumpers are set to COM.3, IRQ 3. Mandrake didn't recognize it.
Thanks,
digger

never ever login as root to run gnome/kde or similar.. it will more than likely bring your OS to death. imo you did something wrong during the installation.. what about do a fresh reinstall? (with format). i know this is not the solution the linux user should say but i guess this will be the easiest way.. cheers /joe/

fresh install

thank you Joe,
I did a fresh install with format lastnight. (Several times this past week or 2). I have it on what was my D drive some one said to take part of C (35gig 32 free) that it might help.
D was a 5 gig. partition before I loaded Mandrake onto it.
Thank You,
digger

Did you download mandrake yourself?
I tried 3 CD's that where included in a magazine and that was a complete mess - especially kde.I hope I got bad CD's.You can try to check the md5sum of the CD's.

Hello,
I deleted all partitions, recreated and formatted them. Then did a fresh install.

startx GDM or startx gnome “enter” or just startx "enter" will bring Gnome up fine
startx icewm “enter” will start icewm
KDE “enter” KDE will begin to load then crash
startx KDE “enter” starts icewm

I understand that if both KDE & Gnome are loaded, KDE will bring up Gnome applications and that Gnome will one in to KDE apps.

In Gnome the KDE apps are in the drop-down table; eg. K-word or K-mail. But when I try to open them nothing happens.

I thought I read some where that there was a problem W/ Mandrake 9.1 & KDE. But I don't remember which page review or forum I was reading. Have read a lot lately, and it is all running together.

Any Ideas?
Thanks
digger
