Question KDE problem on mandrake 9.1


On my machine i have installed mandrake 9.1
I usually log on using the kde window manager...
It used to run smoothly for 8 months...
now whenever i log in using kde the system receives a system crash...
a SIG.... 11 was received....
This is the case with every kde applications
I can use ICEWM or GNOME but i like KDE more...
I don't know what i have done wrong, but this thing is very annoying....
Please help...

you can test to see if it's a home setting mucking things up. do the following..............

open konqueror file manager, go to your /home directory, make sure "show hidden files" is checked in the "view" menu. look for your .kde directory & rename it (like .kdeold) but DON'T DELETE IT! restart KDE & it will rebuild the directory. don't panic! your desktop will not look the same as you left it. (that's why we didn't delete the old one........read on.) if you get no sigfault when it loads, test some apps. if everything seems stable, you can then gradually move various things from .kdeold to the new .kde (personal settings folders, documents, etc.) to get your desktop back to like it was. move things a bit at a time & test things instead of just copying a bunch of things back at once. that way, maybe you can find the offending file(s)/directory that was causing the corruption.

post the contents of xsession-errors here please. you can also look through log files in /var/log for clues. not sure which log. syslog would be a good place to start.
