Re: kdm, kcontrol, and other problems under KDE 3.2 with Sid
OK. This corrects at least part of the problem with KDM.
Another problem with kcontrol: I cannot enable a password-less login
I don't think the preferences menu show up on the Kmenu unless you have
used it before ? It is not showing up on the root account. Of all
accounts, root should be able to run kcontrol.
I sure hope xmms gets fixed sooner rather than later.
thanks for the info.
