maybe u can give it a try, why not? same like my case, and it's weird..
when i upgraded my box to 6.2-PRERELEASE, something weird happens.. i can't
login to my KDE ( my KDE is up and running ) using my user+pass, surprisingly
i add one more user+pass and it's can logged in!
so I've decided to revert back to 6.1-RELEASE-p7 and it's back to normal!
Maybe u should give it a try :)
correct me if i'm wrong..
