    problem while log in in desktop manager


    i have installed mandrake 10.1 from ftp (great way. i strongly recomend). there were no problems: KDE is my desktop manager. so when i try to log in with the desktop manager i cannot. i tell you what happend:

    at the begining i can see my nickname and i can choose between three options: iceWM, default and test mode (i donīt know the exactly words in english, "prueba de fallos" in spanish). i type my password and in that moment the image vibrate like when you enter a bad password (but the password is correct). i have attempted each option and itīs the same.

    when i log in in another terminal, not in grafic mode, ther are no problems and everything works. so, the problem is not with the user.
