Bug#405574: kdm hangs when logging out from kde
Package: kde kdebase kdm
resubmit of message-id 459CE77C.firstname.lastname@example.org
installing several versions of etch (e.g. DVD-ISO RC1 from Nov. 2006 or
the weekly snapshot DVD-ISO from 1st Jan. 2007) works very fine,
expertgui as well as text mode on different platforms.
But there's the same problem on my IBM ThinkPad T23: after installing
kde (via aptitude install kde kde-base kdm kde-i18n-de) with or without
x-window-system/-core, setting kdm as default and logging in, logging
out fails and no kdm appears, only console with the login prompt.
startkde causes failure with the message, that the xserver cannont be connected.
startx starts gnome without any login manager.

I tried several different installations (with/without gnome, different
resolutions, with/without ext. mouse, ...) but with kde it's always the
same, but gnome works fine.
I continue testing and will let you know, if I find a solution or if I
can minimize the problem.

PS: In the while I worked at the /etc/X11/xorg.conf and switched the driver in
Section "Device" from Driver "savage" to Driver "vesa"
and commented out in
Section "Module" #Load "dri" and #Load "glx"
Now the logout works fine and the kdm login-manager appears, but it's still a
provisionally solution, I think. It seems the savage driver is corrupted or wrong version?
The version installed with the weekly snapshot dvd-iso from 01. jan. 2007 is 2.1.2-1 (as
mentioned in header)
Perhaps my message helps to find a solution.
