Re: upgraded kde3.3.1 not working properly. Need help.
I'd compare the output of "ps ax" and "lsmod" before and after
killing/restarting kdm. It'd be even better if you could ssh in before
leaving the messed up kdm login screen and running those commands for
the "before" snapshot.

If the above worked, exit X, and try "/etc/init.d/kdm start". What're
no problems. KDE starts normally.
But when I reboot, it's that initial login screen that doen't work. The
text boxes for user and password don't function. After killing it and
restarting, it works fine.
After playing with it, it seems I don't actually have to kill it. All I
need to do is select console login and let it go back to the window
login. Now it works until I reboot.
IIRC, there was a thread in the past few weeks regarding this issue. I
would suggest searching the archives for "KDE login" (or similar) and see
what that turns up.
Their solution was to purge and reinstall xfree86, etc.
Must be a different problem, since it had no effect.
I'm leaning toward the idea that some module or init script is not
loading until the kdm restart. But that's just a guess.
PS. Don't use the "Console Login" option; instead, use Ctrl-Alt-F1 to
get your "before" snapshot.
