What I want to do is severely limited by the absence of the panel.


I suspect you have tried this, but my kickerrc is attached. I would be worth a shot just to save your present one and copy this one over it and then give it the "dcop kicker panel restart"

Also, for what it is worth, here are the running processes with the panel working. Compare with your:

ps axf | grep kd

Also, you can grab a working kicker executable (/opt/kde3/bin/kicker) from:

http://www.3111skyline.com/download/linux/kicker

I'll leave it there until you get it or tell me you don't need it.

Also, there is another interesting file (/opt/kde3/share/config.kcfg/kickerSettings.kcfg) that I have also put in /download/linux if you would like to compare it with what you have.

The only other thought I would have is a brute force approach of grepping around a little in the /opt/kde3/share directory with something like "egrep -a -r -l kicker *" and looking at the files that are implemented.

Another thought would be to use yast and force a reload of kde.

Good luck Stan, I feel you pain. I'm off to further troubleshoot the Tyan board / Opteron lockup problem I'm dealing with.
