Re: "Could not start kdeinit. Check your installation and try again."
same error here after KDE 3.1.4-woody -> KDE 3.2.0-0woody1 update. Plus: Most
Fonts are not anti-aliased.
woody system + XFree 4.2.1-16 (unstable; no backport)
debugging shows: kdeinit: relocation error: /usr/lib/libqt-mt.so.3: undefined
I think this is because the libqt3-mt 3.2.1-5woody6 backport was compiled
against a different freetype6 lib (my unstable is 2.1.7-2 whilst woody is
Downgrading freetype6 isn't possible since the unstable XFree depends on it.
Thus I tried upgrading libqt3-mt 3.2.1-5woody6 -> libqt3c102-mt 3.2.3-2, since
this one would be compiled against the correct freetypt6 lib. Unfortunately X
doesn't start at all after that:
libkdefx.so4: undefined symbol: __ti7QPixmap
Here the problem seems to be that KDE 3.2.0-0woody1 is compiled against
libqt3-mt 3.2.1 whilst unstable is 3.2.3.
Next option would be to get XFree 4.2.1-15 (can't use 4.1.x on my laptop) from
www.backports.org and use it together with the freetype6 of woody.
Unfortunately I was running out of time here.
