kde doesn't want to start since last update

yesterday I updated kde to the latest version 3.1.5-1

But when my system boots (and it normally automatically logs me into a kde session) it sais something about an internal communication error, and that I should start dcopserver or something. After that it shows me the first time wizard, and when you complete this, it sais it doesn't have write access to my home directory. Then it hangs on the kde load screen, so you can't start it anymore. I'm using fluxbox to write this, and my home dir is perfectly mounted/writable btw.

Ideas?

Re: kde doesn't want to start since last update

you use kdm?

try starting kde from .xinitrc with startkde for once ... maybe there must be something to update (i dont know for sure, because i use kde3.2rc1)

Hi,
Look into /etc/initab.
On the end of this file u have to set

x:5:respawn:/opt/kde/bin/kdm -nodaemon

dp: thx that works
However, when I let him login automatically again, I get the same error
So who's fault is this? kde, kdm in particular or a bad archlinux package?

Legout: that line was already there

Re: kde doesn't want to start since last update

the second I posted that, my system froze

ctrl-alt-backspace or the sysrq stuff didn't work, only a hard reboot saved me

there must definatelly be something wrong with that new kde package hmm
