Messed up login from console, Upgraded to 10.1 and KDE 3.4
Ok, in the last few days I have upgraded to 10.1 and KDE 3.4.

I had everything working pretty well beside the KDM login. Which I found out was an issue.

I did the:

urpme mdkkdm
urpme kdebase-kdm
urmpi mdkkdm

as suggested in the long Topic on the KDE 3.4 upgrade.

As of right now I just have my system booting to the console and I loging and type KDE.

I can login as root and go into KDE just fine.

But when I try to login under my normal username, I type my username then it ask for password. I put my password in but it just sits there and never logs in. I know something I did above caused this because before I did that I had no problem logging into console and doing KDE under my normal username.

Anyone have any suggestions? I mean I can create a new account I guess, and do a chown on my /home/username folder. Or maybe this wouldn't be the best route. I would really like to keep my old login and profile. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I had this similar problem when I used Thac's KDE 3.4 RPM's. I couldn't find a way to fix the login problem as it locked my computer. I just reinstalled my mandrake 10.1. It's not as bad as it sounds because all you have to do is reinstall the "/" partition. leave the "swap" and "/home" partition alone.

Next time use the Konstruct tool, or wait until Mandrake 10.2 comes out and then use Thac's KDE 3.4 for Mandrake 10.2
