Doing this I now find that X-windows starts up and KDE tries to start.
However, just before the KDE login screen comes up the whole thing
stops and an error message says " Cannot start kdeinit. Please check
your installation". Where to go from here ? :)

Dunno... it is just one little step ahead, anyhow.

Contents of /var/log/kdm.log .....................


/opt/kde3/bin/kdm_greet: error while loading shared libraries:
/usr/lib64/ cannot read file data: Invalid argument

Perhaps /usr/lib64/ is missing or bad? It is from the rpm "libidn-1.0-11", although I use the 32 bit version.

My crystall ball says that you might have got installed a mixture of 32 and 64 bit libraries. I think it must have drunk too much, but who knows :-?

You might try running this:

rpm -q -a --queryformat "%{INSTALLTIME}\t%{INSTALLTIME:day} \
%{BUILDTIME:day} %-30{NAME}\t%15{VERSION}-%-7{RELEASE}\t%{arch} \
%25{PACKAGER}\n" | sort | cut --fields="2-" | less -S

It will list everything you have installed sorted by date; this way you will see what was installed last, ant the %{arch} field will tell you the architecture; although I have never tried on a 64 bit system, so I don't know what you will see.

you can use "rpm --querytags | less" to get the list of tokens and add anyone you need to the above command.

Hmmmm.... seems like it might not be too long to Friday night
and the weekend after all :)
