KDM login manager missing after KDE hung


Hi guys,

I'm using Mandrake 9.1 and pretty new to this even though i've been using *nix on and off for the last couple of yrs..
anyways, a few days ago, while i was messing ard with mandrake control center and it caused the system to hang, and i had no luck switching to the other terminals available to do a proper shutdown..

i rebooted, but after linux fixed the inode probs upon restarting, i no longer get the KDE Login Manager when I log out as a user (used to be able to select diff users in the kdm login manager after i log out of kde). Instead it throws me into console mode..i figure this is a problem of kdm, tried looking into kdmrc, but i dun see anything useful there to rectify. any ideas?

thanks!

I dunno where is the solution for this problem, but I logon in the console mode whole time..
maybe you can't get mdk login manager, because it also crash, not because smth. changed in configuration.

It might be a good idea to reinstall by hand if necessary, the KDE RPM's off the CD's.

i'm in runlevel 5 when i boot up the system and kdm shows up.
however, when i log out of kde, i get thrown in console mode, i have to relogin and su again to halt the system so it gets a little irritating in a while cos i can't halt right off kdm.

so i guess the login manager is working. i still have no ideas on how to fix this tho..

I'm seeing a funny on my SuSE 8.1 box, it puts me into the kdm login, I say shutdown-->reboot/halt, then it throws me to console and I have to hit CTRL-ALT-F7 and it starts shutting down.
I've sometimes had to remove all traces of KDE including qt, .kde and .kderc, then reinstall them. It could also be that the configure options for the new qt don't match what's expected, it would be nice if rpm would give you the configured options of a package. Building or installing a new qt has caused me problems before.
Sid.
