KDE crash after upgrade.


So I did an update to my slackware current and as many people here found that KDE crashes... Mine I am unable to find a fix for it.... I get the following error as I log in...

Warning Can not Open ConsoleKit Session Unable To Open Session: Failed To Connect to Socket: /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No Such File or Directory.


Any help would be appreciated!

TIA!

Hi there,

If I had the answer, I would supply it. Unfortunately I do not, as I have not run into this problem, nor read much about it.

As you've noted though, a few others have had similar KDE problems after upgrade, and so there are a few other similar/related threads about this subject; I guess you have checked out those other threads and not found the solution to your case there...

Well anyhow, it's a good idea to wait at least 24 hours minimum before wondering whether or not anyone's out here; you've barely waited an hour for a reply. Be patient and someone will come along sooner or later with some suggestion. Remember too, threads with no replies will get automatically "bumped" a few times, back to the top of the "new threads" list.

If no help has come after 24 hours, consider your thread and decide if there's more information you could add to it, that might make it easier for someone to answer. For example, exactly which set of updates you applied, might be useful info. Or maybe, what debugging or investigating you have done so far in trying to find the problem.

Best regards.

I cant believe how bad this all broke. There is not even one message on the log that can even give me a clue why kde wont start.
Having to reformat. Thanks slack!

Before reinstalling, why not look at the others threads, perhaps they can help you?

Interesting your conclusion is. If you read carefully the thread mentioned above, you would notice that I had similar problem. Anyway, do like I did - remove kde, install once more, should work. If not, try to remove .kde directory from your users dir.

@tomtomjkw:

Thanks for your reply... I think that my issue is related to hald and dbus. Since dbus does not start properly hald hangs and does not start ether.... Please point me to the correct post where people are having dbus and hald issues.... It looks like I am not seen them.... Most are issues with symlinks, qt, etc.... To even tell you more nothing in my system work.... but once I start dbus and hald everything starts working again except for video.

The error messages I was receiving were slightly different than what you report, but the symptoms were exactly the same. KDE starts the splash screen then crashes back to the terminal.

I tried a number of things, but the only thing that finally worked for me was downgrading the mesa-7.9 to 7.8.2. A link to mesa-7.8.2 was provided here:

http://slackware.osuosl.org/unsupported/mesa-7.8.2/

No guarantee this will work for you, but it did for me.

Bob,

Thanks for your reply... Id di that in the past and some what works... but I can not run with the mesa driver because it only gives me generic display because I can not run on high res or even opengl for my video editing tools.

In top of that my issue is hald, dbus, and nvidia.

Did you reinstall the nVidia driver after doing the updates?
Are you using an up to date version of the driver.
Your log shows that your driver is unable to support the new X.

Guys thank you for all the help.

I have reverted back to 13.1
I am not a tinkerer or a test monkey my desktop is a production machine so I cant afford to be down like this
As I posted before I ended up in current land by mistake. so I am back at 13.1 and all is fine.

Thank You!
