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....

Well, as I was anyway in the process of changing the system, I'll just 
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.

thanks anyway,
