Hi KK, thanks. I have tried ctrl+ald+bspace but got a black screen for a split sec abd got right back to KDM login. Also tried ctrl+f1, ctrl+f1 etc but go nowhere.
I can get in single user mode but no edit previleges as I am not root. still trying different things. hanks tho.

I "wrapped" the text of your last paragraph, because
you had only placed newlines at the end of each paragraph.
It's helpful to place a newline every 72 characters or so.
In short, I've not got an answer for KDM, but you should
be able to drop to the console with CTL-ALT-BKSP --- and,
if that doesn't work, you should be able to access a virtual
console with CTL-F1, CTL-F2, etc. Edit the offending file
(rc.conf?, /etc/ttys?) and try "kill -HUP `pgrep Xorg`".
And, if you can't get a virtual console, you'll want
to reboot into single-user mode, I guess.
1 + 1 = 3, for large values of 1.
