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
(home machine).

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.
