kde will only start failsafe mode
Can anybody out there help me? I have recently upgraded to XFree86 4.4
from 4,3 on RedHat 9.0 i686 system. The KDM manager loads as normal but
with strange little grey console screen for some reason. If I select KDE
the splash screen does not load and i end up with couple of little
windows. terminal, xterm etc. I can type startkde in terminal and kde
loads but any windows do not have minimise, max and close buttons in top
right of window. The top bar is just grey aswell.
If I start KDE from root outside X
Get following errors:
rm: cannot remove '.' or '. .'
xsetroot: unable to open display ''
xrdb: cant open display ''
xset: unable to open display ""
ksplash: cannot connect to x server
kdeinit: Aborting $DISPLAY is not set
KSM server: cannot connect to x server
if i try xstart before this get fatal server error. server already
running, if not delete /tmp blah blah
only way of starting kde is in fail safe mode. X console always stays
open and reports fonts.dir problems missing element 64 plus many other
errors. This is not a problem but spent days trying to figure this. Got
to be a solution.
