DCOP fail!

Mandrake 10.1 powerpack:
I get a DCOP error message when starting KDE:
Could not read network connection list.

And because I use the norwegian version the message is a little bit different from this:
PLease Chech that DCOPserver- application is running.....

Please help me...

I am not sure but u can try these steps
1. create new user through text mode logging.
2. now reboot your pc and try logging normally (i mean in GUI) with this as user
3. if yes then open a console and copy .DCOPserver_hostname__0 to your /root directory
when it says "overwrite" say no and make backup of it previously
where hostname is your pc name and /root is home directory of your problemed one user
4. change to your /root directory and link this copied file to following link
ln -sf .DCOPserver_hostname__0 .DCOPserver_hostname_:0
5. check by ls -al
6. reboot and try to logging normally (in GUI) as root(problemed user)

hope it works
