Red Hat 7.2 (KDE) on laptop, lost panel


I have tried KDE for one month now. Sometimes when I turn on my Inspiron 8100 and log in (using KDE the only one I have installed) the panel (lower task bar) won't come up. If I logout and reboot (I have grafical login mode ie 5 instead of 3) still comes up without the panel. The only work arround is a shutdown (from the grafical window ie logout-> shutdown). After I do the shutdown everything works fine. My kernel says 2.4.7-10 on a i 686. Something very similar happened when I had Gnome but eventually some files were corrupted and I decided to go with KDE (re installation solution). I read in some place to take "a snapshot" when it works fine then another snapshot when it doesn't and compare.
1. What is a snapshot?
2. With no panel I can't get a shell or console, what do I do?

hit alt-f2 for a run dialog...then type the name of whatever you want to run.

works in Lycoris, and I believe it's a kde thing. try it

Log in as root and remove your account and recreate it. Could be corrupted files.

I've seen this on my RH7.3/KDE3.0 as well.

Seems to be whenever the screensaver kicks in, the taskbar disappears and won't come back up again until you log out and back in again.

Don't know why it is, but I've just disabled the screensaver to get round it!

no, just try alt-f2 which will give you a run dialog, then type "kicker"...it'll bring it up.

try it. xkill your kicker and then do this, you'll see it works.

if not on mandrake, hit cntrl-alt-esc and then click on your kicker....then try it. it works
