KDE login lockout
I have Open SuSE 10.1 and after updating and installing various programs (e.g. Jokosher, KpovModeller, etc along with their various dependencies.), I can no longer get KDE to finish initialising. The logon process continues as expected and I am allowed to logon. Having logged on, a timer (lizard with a marching circle of dots and 'KDE 3.5') appears. The background remains but the timer eventually disappears. Nothing else happens and I am at a loss as to where to start looking. I've tried logging on as root and I've tried renaming ~/.kde/share/config/kdedrc. Alt F10 doesn't reveal anything obvious!
I have looked in /var/log/Xorg.0.log and ~/.session-errors but don't really know what I'm looking for. At one point, it looked as if it was stuck trying to find some fonts and I changed the config file it mentioned in Alt+F10 (can't remember which now), so that it no longer tried to find font directories/files I don't have installed.
I'm sorry I don't have any detail pasted in here but i'm using my work laptop to report on my non functioning home machine, which makes cut/paste difficult.
Any hints as to where to start looking, what to look for and whether it might be better to try something else (I want to stay with KDE/SuSE, if poss) -
Many thanks (please be friendly, I'm not keen on flames - If I could add more here, I would and if you suggest how/what, I will!)
did you try starting X server in Single User mode?
