FC 3: Error - KDesktop

Error - KDesktop

Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:

klauncher said: Error loading kio_media


That is what I get on startup.

This happens after I did
yum install kdevelop
this also needed the following things (copy-paste from yum.log)

I am sorry about the double post but I need help and this topic is quickly fading.

There is however an update. The error occurs when I change resolution too.
So maybe that helps you guys to finding a solution to my problem.

edit :

Something really weird is going on.
I now can't access devices and I can't mount stuff.
Fstab and mstab is near-empty ( im guessing they were full before )

and mnt is empty .. again guessing it had SOMETHING there before
My other HardDrive.

When I press the + infront of Devices I get the error in the first post.
Can not launch kio_media and whatnot.

I am also having this problem.
I don't know what I've changed for it to happen though!

I see nobody replied to your post..
Did you have any luck elsewhere?

Is there anyone out here that knows how to fix this?
