Lets try Again !!!
I have been trying to fix this since Tuesday 09-05,
due to stormy weather, I shutdown before leaving for the weekend,
normally I rarely logout, let alone shutdwn.
Login (from KDM) is ok,
while loading kde, (splash at stage: "restoring session")
it freezes, all user procs seem stuck in stop/wait state (no zombies),
must kill X (CAB),
I can login with other (normaly unused) uids, and root ok
( I never clutter up my root desktop ),
I can drop to init 3, login, startx, same result,
mv .kde .kde-save and start fresh, loads fine,
cp over my configs (except: Kgpg, Kpgp), and restart X,
and it loads completely (although several panel applets, and superkaramba get left out)
But ( this is whats driving me crazy ), if I exit and startx again, same problem (its adding
the kgpg, kpgp config back in,, but a clean kde init does not have them, most likely
its referenced from kmail, have not yet disabled gpg from within kmail, yet)
Twice while testing ( adding one apps configs at a time), I got an error message
stating that: GnuPG Agent is enabled, but the agent doesnt seem to be running,
that I should disable it, or fix the agent. < see attachment (screenshot): kgpg-startup-error-1.jpg >
!!!!!!!!!! WTF 30KB file limit on this list !!!!!!!! @$^*(^$##^&**%#^& !!!!!!!!!!
Disabling the agent through KGpg's config did not fix it.
On 09-05, I ran YOU, and found updates for gpg, and gpg2, but this had no effect ::
> 2006-09-05 17:59:50 (16992): Installing gpg2: "gpg2: This update fixes a segmentaion fault"
> 2006-09-05 17:59:44 (16992): Installing gpg: "gpg: This update fixes a segmentaion fault"
I did notice that after the previous run of YOU, w/ another gpg fix, that the time frame after
I had a similar ( or the same ) problem, but after trying to login a couple times, it finally worked
> 2006-07-26 17:56:53 (660): Installing gpg2: "gpg2: Security update to fix crash on special crafted messages"
Nothing of relevnce in system logs:
> /var/log/messages & /var/log/warn::

captured output of startx, but tells me nothing usefull < see attachment: startx-kde_freeze-log-1.txt >
These are the files I can mv/rm and get the desktop loaded:
well, that is all I can think of to report,
If anybody can help me fix this, I would greatly appriciate it.
