[opensuse-kde3] Possible Problem with KDM in KDE3 and 11.3/11.4 re: Booting to GUI?
Started my computer this a.m. and it booted my 11.3/kde3 partition as it
should, but dropped to the commandline rather than go through to the desktop.
Logging in and "startx" worked right off. Problem is repeatable, and booting
will not go through to the GUI without dropping to the commandline.

Tried it on the 11.4/kde3 that I had created a week ago (pure icewm install
for 11.4, then add kde3 repo), and the same thing happened. Yesterday both
were working fine.

Here are the pertinent lines in /var/log/warn's from these two systems
(Xorg.0.log is useless):

Mar 13 15:37:18 s113kde3 kdm[2373]: X server startup timeout, terminating
Mar 13 15:37:18 s113kde3 kdm[2373]: X server for display :0 can't be started,
session disabled

Mar 13 15:19:05 s114kde3 kdm[1904]: X server startup timeout, terminating
Mar 13 15:19:05 s114kde3 kdm[1904]: X server for display :0 can't be started,
session disabled

Two other opensuse partitions I have, with 11.4/kde4 (stock install from final
DVD), and 11.4/kde3 (this is the one I set up as a test yesterday, putting on
11.3/kde3 first, then upgrading to 11.4/kde3), go straight through to the GUI
as they should. BUT, they have the stock X video drivers.

The two non-performing partitions/systems have the ATI 11.2 proprietary
driver. As I said, everything was fine yesterday when I powered down, and I
haven't had a problem with the 11.3/kde3 partition that I use every day.

I'm tempted to put the ATI driver on the 11.4/kde3 system (the one I set up as
a test yesterday, since krandr doesn't retain settings) and see if it craps
out on boot too. Would a recent (up to yesterday) KDE3 update(s) have
affected this?
