Hi Richard,

Well ... I'm not shure this applies to my case. I didn't change any resolution 
related stuff. I did a normal shutdown in the morning and after turning the 
machine on again in the eve, KDE4 did the "black-screen-go-to-start-thing". 
KDE3 is working, so I am assuming I am missing a certain config file ... 

Talk to you later ... Hans (240 to go)
