    KDE Problem


    I just finished installing a debian distro (Knoppix), install went fine, on a dual boot using LILO as the manager. Wen I load up the distro, KDE gives me the following errors:

    "Writing to the temp directory (/tmp) failed with the error "Permission denied"

    "KDE unable to start."

    Then this error

    "Couldn't stat ksmserver"

    And then finally it says I do not have enough memory to start KDE, 82 mb is the minimum required and gives me a shell window.

    I have 156 MB RAM with a 350 MB linux swap partition, how is this possible?

    Thanks

    Did you try changingthe actual permission on that folder? My /tmp is 777 mabye you could try to set the permission...

    Code:
    chmod 777 tmp
    would do the trick
