Hey !

I got problem running KDE. For exemple, when I start konqueror from wmaker it tell me :

[nc@amaroli nc]$ konqueror
konqueror: error while loading shared libraries: libXinerama.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[nc@amaroli nc]$

and KDE don't wanna start (kdeinit give the same message)

In which package is this library ? How can I make KDE running ?

Please help me !

Probably you are using an old version of Xfree, from XF 4.4 (or maybe 4.3) is compiled with xinerama support so all the graphical application compiled afterwards look for that library.
Just try to update Xfree

If you haven't been sys updating (pacman -Syu), you're going to have issues like this. In fact, it's a FAQ:

Q: Im installing packages from -Current, but they're not working
A: If you want to install packages from -Current (e.g. not from the release CD), then you MUST pacman -Syu often. This keeps your system up to date. Arch always uses the latest libraries/compilers, and frequently there are binary incompatibilities with the Release ISO. If things aren't working, always try a sys update, because fixed/updated packages are probably already out.

Thanks all for your fast answer !

I did what you told me :

- Installing  X.org
- pacman -Syu

I didn't want to upgrade my system 'cause I hat problem with my last installation after an pacman -Syu.

Now I'm using X.org and I don't have bizzare fonts anymore. But (yes there is a but) when I install kde-i18n-fr (I'm french. Sorry for my very bad english) KDE crash with an segment fault aaaaaaaaaaarg !!!

KDE package don't appear to me to be very stable...  :?

So I go to /var/cache/pacman/pkg and I "pacman -U kde*" . Now it woks (till when ?)

It's a pity that KDE package is very instable on my computeur. Is anymone have the same problem ?
