Ive just installed xorg 6.8.2 and have rebuilt all my packages.
All X applications work fine except i now can't start kde.
My problem seems related to the dcopserver and kde thread however i am
getting different symptoms.
My machine uses kdm and i have two users set up. When i try to log in as
user A the kde splash screen comes up, it gets half way through and
dumps me back to kdm.
If i log in as user B i get no splash and just an xterm in the lower
right corner with no window manager. Running startkde from here fails.
It appears that user A fails due to /tmp/.ICE-unix being owned by the
user and not root. If i chown root .ICE-unix then i can log in via kdm
and calling startx (with startkde in my .xinitrc). This also works for
I have no idea why when logging in to user B from kdm the startkde
script is not run.
I have removed /usr/X11R6/bin from my path and replaced it
All packages were built from pkgsrc updated last night.
Does anyone have any ideas? I suppose i can all ways revert back to
Thanks in advance
