Have just installed SimplyMepis 7.1 on to a clean hard drive.
The live cd worked ok and the mepis installed with no problems but
when rebooted and after the login screen I get the message "There was an
error setting up inter-process communications for KDE. Message returned=
Please check "dcopserver" program is running"
(mr blue is the name of the computer)
I can log in to the console screen ok but how do I check that the dcopserver
is running and if not how do I run it.
This is the first time I've touched Unix for about 15 years so I am very rusty.
Did you put a space in the host name? Maybe that's the problem (I'm just guessing, 'cause I don't know if that's possible from installation)...
