I have the sane problem with user logins here. Although I have no segfaults, but using kdm I can pnly login as root, any other user will just restart kdm. On the console I can login with any user, no problem at all. But X cannot be started.

I've tried a lot of things and mine is still broken. Maybe we can fix this together if no one else jumps in. I am sending this from a user logged into Gnome and it looks like I don't have a window manager installed.

I am able to log a user into KDE in failsafe mode now and I have tried so many things I can't give any simple answers at this point.

It has even been awkward to check out the bug number that Jacob gave me in this mode.

I'm going to see if I just need to install sawfish to fix my Gnome version of the problem.

Installing sawfish didn't help. Still no functioning window manager in KDE or Gnome.

I'm running icewm so I can get some work done.
