Im trying to upgrade my Mandrake 9.1 rc2 release with KDE 3.1.1 that I downloaded from Freshmeat.
I viewed the readme, and installed all of the pertinent packages for the install : ie.. aRts, kdelibs, kdebase, kde-i18n, and a few others.
I configured, and installed all of the packages through the command line.
I guess the last step is to configure the .Xsession file, so that it will run the new version of KDE.
I found the file, but when I try and add 'startkde' at the end of the file, it tells me that I dont have enough privledges to make changes to the file.
Ive tried editing the file with Kedit, and it tells me I dont have enough permissions to write to this file??
When I log in as root, through the konsole, I can edit the file....like inserting 'startkde'....but I dont know how to save.
Is there a way I can log in as root through LILO, at the login screen?
How can I get around editing the file?? Or how can I gain the appropriate permissions to change the file?
Any help would be great!!
