konqueror crashes when I run it from the console


hi

I have a strange problem.
all of a sudden, when I run konqueror from the console as Root, I get the 'kde crash report' every 5 seconds. the program is still running, and even after I shut it down, I keep getting these messages. one after the other.

please help me.

thanks
//Santiago

Not sure of the issue myself but here something to try to fix.
Open terminal session and su to root.
Goto /root and rename the following subdirectories
mv /root/.kde /root/.kde_backup
mv /root/.config /root/.config_backup
mv /root/.local /root/.local_backup

Now start konquorer and see if that fixes it. Just a guess that maybe there is some corrupt file maybe from and update of KDE that may caused the issue.

thanks

that did solve the problem with the crashing.
now I'm just getting wierd error messages in the prompt window.

I guess it's one of those typical 're-install situations' huh?

What kind of weird error messages?
Also as a user or as root?
Can it be duplicated?
