Am having trouble since since I did an apt-get to upgrade from KDE 3.1.5 to 
        "cannot start kdeinit. Check your installation."
The system is kernel 2.6.0, KDE3.2 , XFree 4.2.1 on stable.
As I am just a user of this desktop and not technically experienced in 
tracking down the reasons I would like to know if there is something specific 
I can do, or will this be resolved in the next update?
Tried the archives but unfortunately did not give me anything greater 
understanding. Could it just be some some lib inconsistency?
When I log off it occasionally gives SISSEGV, but not always, and now Konq 
occasionally sissegv's (no specific site).
Would appreciate some guidance,
