Re: knoppix 4.02 upgrade

Hi Laszlo,

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.

Best regards.

Did you receive help on this issue?  Didn't see it until now.  What happens 
when you try  to start kde?debian-knoppix@lists.debian.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 
workdebian-knoppix@lists.debian.org 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?
