Hi Dan,

Thanks for the help.  I found the line you wer talking about.  It said

x:5:respawn:/usr/X11/prefdm -nodaemon

prefdm is a link to /usr/bin/kdm.

I tried changing the line so that it points directly at kdm.  Same result.
For now I commented out this line in inittab and use startx to start KDE
from a command prompt.  Works OK.  Funny thing is that it brings up the same
grey screen, but after a bit KDE starts.

Any other ideas would be appreciated as well.

  A good place to start would be your /etc/inittab file. It is a line in
this file that controls how the login manager is started. You should have a
line towards the bottom of the file that looks something like this:

  x:5:respawn:/opt/kde/bin/kdm -nodaemon

  except that you are going to want to replace '/opt/kde/bin/kdm' with the
path to kdm on your system. Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    I have RedHat 6.0.  I just tried upgrading from KDE 1.1 to 1.1.2.  now I
get a nice grey screen where I used to have a graphical login in prompt.

    Anyone got any ideas where to start before I try a reinstall??
