Re: kdm problem in Karolina's 3.1.0+rel debs


The kdm hang is due (as earlier posts indicated) to an incompatibly 
with newer versions of QT in Sid and possibly GCC 32 libs and has been 
around for about a week.  On my system  SID KDM startup is 35 seconds. 
(KDM startup on my woody system is 9 seconds).  Be patient!  I did see 
that kdm_greet and krootimage were the KDM processes that were 
stalling. However I don't see a memory leak or size excess of the KDM 
process after KDE starts.
