fedora 11 doesnt launch after login


hi,
I have a very annoying problem, when I started my laptop on f11 (kde) I filled the user and pw field and after few seconds of loading, it go back to the login screen....
I have never had problem, last time I shut down my laptop there was no error. I have tried the differents options to start my f11 but I does not change the problem.

Log in as a different user, or boot into single-user mode. Go into your user's home directory, and remove the .kde (or .kde4) directory, with an "rm -fR .kde4". Reboot and log back in.

No, Fedora 11 is the operating system. KDE, Gnome, or the other desktops run on top of them, providing the GUI. Deleting that folder from your home directory, removes just YOUR settings for KDE. Next time you log in, it'll be like the first time. You'll have to set it all up again like you want it (widgets, window positions, etc.), but it'll work.
