KDM can't load KDE.


I've changed Default runlevel to 4 to have graphical login.
Seems to be I have KDM loading but after entering login and pass KDE won't start showing me little window with console on blue(!) =) screen.
Any ideas?

As root run xwmconfig and select KDE, then go back to the KDM screen and see if KDE loads.

do you have write access to your ~/.kde directory? If you don't, that'll mess up things.

Yes I have write access to my ~/.kde directory.

If I'm using runlevel 3 all is ok and I can login to system:
Login:
Pass:
Then startx - and I'm in KDE.
Using runlevel 4 won't start KDE anyway.
