    Mandrake Linux 10 - KDE login problem


    Hi!

    Been googling like crazy for this, but, obviously nothin turned up.
    Started havin the strangest problem last night (don´t recall doin anything out of the ordinary, some ftp´ing, changing screen resolution downwards, log in/out to affect settings of screen, surfin around and then shutdown). So next boot: Running as user, I am unable to do "startx" recieve a fatal error 104. Change to SU, able to run startx, get to login screen. At login prompt I try to log in with my user account, looks like it will work, but KDE returns me to login screen after a while. A reboot does not reset this behaviour.

    Any ideas?

    Tanks in advance to any replies

    I'm shooting in the dark a bit, but as no-one else has yet answered your question ...

    If you can get into a terminal, it would be worth looking in /var/log for any system errors. You could post them here. I think X keeps its own logs.

    I think you have an X server problem, and this is probably related to changing your settings. Why it should crash, I don't know - but you could well find yourself editing your X settings by hand using Vi, Vim, Emacs or whatever you fancy.

    At least that gives you a starting point. It would be wise to make a note of your monitors' specs before you do anything else. Vertical and horizontal refresh rates for eg.
