Hi Peter,

I had the same problem. It sems to be a known condition.
The following is a copy of the solution posted to the list, which
resolved the problem for me:

Usually, problems like these are because the control centre works on one
config file and kdm actually uses another. The symlink between the two
are broken in the upgrade.

Check that /opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc actually is a symlink to
/etc/opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc. if it isn't, create it with

ln -s /etc/opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc

In the /etc/opt/kd[...] directory it's a possibility (it happened to me)
that rpm will have moved kdmrc to kdmrc.rpmsave. If that's the case,
just rename it to kdmrc before you create the symlink.
