mandy cant open x (kde) for user/ after logoff


I have just upgraded to mandy 10.1 and Firefox this morning and it worked well for three hours. Now suddenly it just cant open kde for user, it freezes after it gets the password I can log in as root, then kde will open up, but when i log off it just goes into console mode instead of graphic screen. i know how to use the console, but i need to get back to x as soon as possible, i have homework to do urgently

I will appreciate ANY help, i need help a lot.

did you try the startx command logged in as user. Then make sure you go to your loggin configuration and make sure to set it to boot using the graphical interface.
