Yesterday I installed 11.2 on my machine, and I don't succeed to login to
my useraccount under X. It prompts for the user, and when I enter the name,
and subsequently the password, the system goes away for 1 or two seconds
after hitting enter, and then comes back with the login screen. When I
enter the name again, and thereafter password, the same happens again. No
error- message, just comes back like if nothing happened. No error with the
password: if I enter a different password, it gives a "wrong
password"-message. On a console (under eg. alt-ctl-F2)I can login without a
problem. But not under KDE.
Can't find a message in /var/log/messages, the only log I can imagine as a
place for error-messages.
Or does a different log give better indications?

~/.xsession-errors could.

Anyone a hint?

Select the failsafe session type in KDM, then launch KDE manually
using 'startkde'.
