installed kdevelop and now my system is HOSED

I installed kdevelop last night and played with it a bit - set up one little "hello world" project and built it to test things out. Everything went totally normal. The program had no bugs (it was helloworld, for pete's sake!), so that wasn't the cause of the following.

When I rebooted today I see lots of "no permission" and lots of "file too big" messages and X won't start. I can hit CTRL-ALT-F2 and login in command line though.

When I try to start X manually, it fails and says, "Could not find init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list!", and probably some other stuff that scrolled off.

Anyone know what might be the problem?

I've already uninstalled kdevelop with yum, but there were like 22 dependencies that I don't remember the names of.

Oh ya, Fedora Core 4 with Gnome.

Ah well, I guess I'll never know what happened.

I've been meaning to build a bigger, better, faster Linux box anyway. I'd been running an old spare-box P3 700MHz clunker while I learned Linux and decided whether I wanted to continue using it. I'm hooked.

I now have an old P4 1.5GHz box that just came in. Got no other use for it, so it's the new Linux box.

Stole a 80GB and a 40GB drives out of my #1 win-xp box for it and bought #1 a nice shiny pair of new 200GB NCQ drives for a new RAID0 array. Sweeeeet!!!
