Thanks, I figured the startx out (startkde would not work) but it brings
nowhere. Seems actually it may not be KDE but X that's out of order. I could
try a new user but since even root doesn't work....

transfer my settings and use the old partition to test some new distribution,
I don't have enough time to waist on mending the old one.
