Exclamation What Did I Do To Kde!!!! I Think I Killed It :-(

my computer has been up and running fine and i decided to install the xine player when i did, it asked to uninstall a bunch of things, i stupidly pressed ok for all of them then when i restarted my KDE will not load up, i cant even go to the auto login and select KDE because it it not on the menu, but when i go to remove packeage, i see abunch of stuff under kde environment. Please help me, i dont want to have to uninstall and reinstall again...... Those packages that i had to uninstall had to do with KDE multimedia, or something

Did you, by any chance, install Gnome (or another window manager) when you installed [distro]?

You can always try putting the linux CDs back in the tray and seeing if you can reinstall KDE.
