I've posted this problem elsewhere a week or so ago and still no fixes, so hopefully this forum will help. I have a problem initializing kde. When I log on in text mode I can ping and ftp and use the net. After I startx the kde load screen comes up and locks up during the "initializing peripherals" phase. This is a problem because if I boot with "nohotplug" kde loads fine but my net card and mouse do not work. This is a labtop so its not that much of a problem except for needing a network card. I am running slackware 10.0.
Oh, if I use SLAX, knoppix, damnsmalllinux, or any other live cd I do not have this problem. :?
Thank you for you time
