Re: FIXED: can't start KDE as user
check your diskspace as well!
I had the same situation, and found that my harddisk was nearly full.
After cleaning up, I was able to login as a normal user again

I installed the fixed libc6 without seeming to fix the KDE problem.
I looked at Debian-KDE found a reference to
http://wiki.debian.net/?DebianKDE where I found libsensors-1debian1
s/libsensors-1debian1_2.7.0-6_i386.deb> which is missing from sid. Clicking
that link will D/L it which can be installed with dpkg. Then you can
install kde-core from sid and maybe that will fix it for you as it did for
me. It may take a couple of login's before KDE3 shows up in the list and
maybe two logins to KDE3 before it works.
That didn't do it for me yet... but I found another interesting thing:
is it correct that the permissions on /usr/X11R6/bin is 700?
I get complains from Xsession that it cannot find certain scripts in that
I guess xserver-common sets this permissio as I first chose 'root only' at the
question who should be able to start the xserver... I later changed it to
'anyone', but it seems that didn't fix the permissions...
If this can be confirmed it should be a bug in the xserver-common script.
