Question KDE suddenly won't run as user anymore

Morning folks,

Well friday night I entered linux land and am so far pretty pleased with what I have achieved. However last night I logged in as a user, tried to start KDE (version 3.1.4) but it booted me back to the console. The only thing I think that could have affected it somehow was installing x-cdroast which I did using the instructions in the readme.

I tried to enclose the XFREE86.0.log file in my message but I'm only allowed 2500 chars. What's the easiest way to post it?

Ok I sorted it. I re-ran xwmconfig as the user and chose KDE as the default window manager for X.

Thanks guys and keep up the good work.
