I commented it out but no cigar :( This is my laptop so I moved /root
to /root.org and mkdir /root and tried just in case there was
something in one of the configuration files. No luck.
KDE seems to finish the Aconadi Server Self tests and hangs. I have
to ^C from the term window. I am now writing this from vtwm that is
interesting and usable. It works fine but does have a black screen
that I would have expected to be gray like twm but . . . . who knows.
I really feel that xorg is working without problems (thanks to you)
and that there is something wrong with my kde4 install. Any opinions?
Thanks again Warren,
