Arrrrrrrrgggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Shit happens......

I was running RC2 on my laptop, and did a sudo pisi up today.

Afterwards system information showed that I was running 2009 with KDE 4.2.4 (as far as I remember), so far so good.

I thought to be sure let's do a proper shutdown and restart...BUT

after that I am stuck in the login screen (which should not appear at all because I had automatic login in RC2) and I cannot access the graphical KDE environment anymore!

Each time I enter the correct password for the user it starts trying to open KDE but after a while and a black screen with a corsor it returns back to the login screen.

Other types of sessions including failsafe return the same login screen

I still can login using the same user/password when I do a  Colsoe login.

As soon as I try to startx, it crashes and from a bunch of output on the screen it appears it ahs problems with kdeinit4 or so.

Anyone a suggestion how to restore the KDE startup?

I still have the system running and accesible in Console.

This is too bad, and IMO should not happen following a regular upgarde but as stated shit happens, so now I have to face it.

Anyone a suggestion?

What if you rename ~/.kde4 ?

Thanks for your reply.

Sadly this did not workout for me, situation remains unchanged after renaming .kde4

In the error messages I get in the console upon trying startx it is stated that the library kded_powerdevil and therefore the module kdepowerdevil cannot be foun d and opened.

But I do not know whether this is the cause or just an epiphenomenon of kde4 refusing to startup correctly

Decided to do a fresh install of Pardus 2009 stable.
I am gald I macde a seperate home partition the last time I had installed Pardus, thus after reinstalling the base system it uses my previous home partition without a problem.

I will report in the bug report that I decided not too struggle any longer with my mentioned problem.

I think that's a good and fair decision ( with respect to Bugzilla).  Smiley
