X can't find kde dir Slackware 9


i have a problem with my slackware9 install it has been running for quite awhile now. the other day i tried to mess with the xf86config file to get it so that i can output to my tv screen via the s-video connection in the back of my geforce 4. well when i did that and rebooted my machine and did the command startx it went thru all the steps and then crashed cause it couldn't find my kde dir which is on still there actually i think its /opt/kde or something like that. umm if you still need some more specifics let me know here ill be checking in later to see if any one has any idea what im talking about.

thanks
John

Well first, you don't need to reboot in order for it to take effect. Only absolutely necessary time you have to reboot is a new kernel compile.

I have a ti4200 and have gotten tv-out to work. What guide did you use?

This document should tell you everything you need to know to get tv-out working. ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li....0-5336/README

well i didn't use a guide i got it working once before but i used a program called x display that for some odd reason didn't get installed this recent install. but ill take a look at that guide hopefully i might be able to get it working here soon but my main problem is getting x to find my kde dir again so it can at least load that.

try the command 'ldconfig' and see if it fixes it. If not you'll have to edit your PATH variable and add '/opt/kde' to it.

So open /etc/profile with your favorite text editor and a few lines down you will find this:

PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games"

and then add to it like this:

PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/opt/kde"
