Re: Upgrade woody-->sarge, KDE stops working

I had the exact same problem ... except I use kdm.  You must have a lot more patience than myself.  It only took me a few hours before I decided to just back up all of my data and re-install everything.  :-)

With a fresh install, KDE works just fine.

Very similar problems here:  after the upgrade, I use
xdm to log in.  My window manager is icewm.  But the
same problem.  It flashes screens for a maybe five or ten
seconds (I have a slow machine) and I'm back at the
login screen again.  So the problem may bot depend on
gdm and kde specifically, at least if I have the same
problem instead of just the same symptom.
