Re: knoppix 4.02 upgrade
When I try to start kde, the process is not completed and returns to the start menu. I can run iceWM and terminal and thats all.
I just re-installed knoppix 4.02 and avoided running apt-get upgrade. It is ok now but lately I ran into a problem wherein I cannot use the keyboard. It locked! Though am able to start kde and run it without my keyboard! Am still trying to figure it out.

Did you receive help on this issue? Didn't see it until now. What happens
when you try to start firstname.lastname@example.org
During some upgrades of kde it sometimes takes some hand editing of kdm to
keep kde working. This was an issue for me a while back while Debian Sarge
was still Testing, and a major version of kde entered Sarge.
Don't remember why, but somehow one desktop ended up running kde using gdm as
the window manager instead of kdm. Since kdm is a rather large config file,
you may want to try using gdm temporarily, if that works, until you can
email@example.com your way through the config file of kdm.
Have you checked the logs for errors in XFree86 or whatever the newest
versions of X knoppix is now using? Do you have a kdm directory in /var/log?
For example in the desktop where I have gdm as the controlling config file
even though I'm running kde, I don't have a kdm log file, but I do have a gdm
directory where I can look for error messages.
Is your sources list correct?
