I updated my KDE the other day, and it's giving me a lot of problems. When I do a startx the KDE/Arch Linux splash screen comes up, but it stops at "Initializing System Services" and then the splash screen disappears. That's as far as it gets. Even after a reinstall it still isn't working. Any ideas?
Did you follow the instructions provided in the Wiki document ?
Out / Gone
Mirgrating all my machines off ArchLinux . No longer part of the ArchLinux community / users .
I did a fresh install of 3.4 the first time around (uninstalled 3.3 and installed 3.4). I didn't know if it was a problem with my xorg.conf so I checked that too, but it still had the same problem. Any other ideas? Perhaps I should just manually compile and install KDE?
Have you got fam, dbus and hal running?
Also, it would be worthwile to check the user you want to log in with is member of all these audio, video, optical, storage... groups.
Try starting kde with a user who has never run kde before.
I have nothing to say, and I am saying it.
