Subject: [gentoo-user] Icons at startup of a KDE session
Date: Tue, 10 Aug 2010 19:08:35
1 Hello,
3 i've installed Gentoo and KDE 4.4 on an AMD64 system, configured
4 /etc/conf.d/xdm to start kdm as login server.
6 After login the KDE4 desktop starts up - a little box with at least 5 or 6
7 icons in it where one after the other icon displays blurred and then comes
8 clear (Disk, Tools, World, ...).
9 This process stops at the fourth icon (after the world icon) which remains
10 blurred. At this stage the PC simply hangs - no ssh, no VT-switch, nothing.
12 So my first question is - what stage the fourth icon stands for. And where to
13 look for the issue.
15 After a reboot to the command line i viewed the logs (/var/log/messages,
16 /var/log/Xorg.0.log) but nothing looks suspicious. The last line in
17 /var/log/messages reads:
18 <timestamp> <hostname> kdm: 0:[<pid>]: pam_unix(kde:session): session opened
19 for ...
21 The user was newly created using "useradd -m -g ...). There was no .kde4
22 directory in his home directory.
24 Other window managers (fluxbox) don't show this problem.
26 Kernel is gentoo-sources-2.6.34-r1. All components are from the stable tree.
28 This may not be an gentoo problem.
30 All hints are welcome.
32 regards
33 Petric
