User logout from KDE 3.3 kills KDM
I just installed a vanilla clean Slackware 10.1 on my old Sony VAIO PCG-R505CT. Changed default runlevel to 4 in /etc/inittab and set correct refresh-rates for X-windows in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
System boots like a charm, presents the KDE 3.3 login screen and allows me to log in.
However, when I log out, the screen goes black and nothing happens.
Switching to a virtual console shows that kdm is no longer running. /etc/rc.4 is plain vanilla, starting kdm with -nodaemon option, just as it does on my other computers also running Slackware 10.1
Logging in as root and restarting kdm manually presents the login screen again, but the problem repeats itself on logout. Logging in as normal user with startx is not a problem.
Have tried creating a new user with blank /home/user directory to see if it's user specific, but it's not.
Has anyone experience with this?
Can anyone tell me where KDM keeps its relevant logfiles (~/.xsession-errors show nothing).
Is there a way to enable verbose logging to find out why on earth it dies after user logout?
Tried google.com/linux - no success.
PS. The system used to run SuSE 9.2 on which KDE 3.3 worked fine. SuSE was a CPU hog however, so it was a major strain on my already lacking patience...
Thanks in advance as always
