Thumbs up dcop network connection list kde startup error solved

do not let your host name have spaces in it. I tried all the other recomendations on other forums and a friend of mine suggested that it <linux> may not like the host name so I changed host name Gentoo Geek Land to Gentoo_Geek_Land and THIS FIXES THE PROBLEM I hope this saves someone 5:00 houres in the future
