           Summary: Black screen when logging into KDE4
           Product: kde
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Mandriva RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: unassigned-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: AAW milwpc com


Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.97.0)
Installed from:    Mandriva RPMs
Compiler:          gcc-4.2.2-2mdv2008.1 
OS:                Linux

When logging into KDE4 (from kdm 3.5.8) the entire screen is black. KTips appears normally. I can hear system sounds in response to key presses (changing desktops, etc.). Alt-F2 brings up the run dialog and Ctl-Alt-Del brings up the logout dialog.

This happened after upgrading my Mandriva cooker system with the latest Mandriva packages as of 2007-12-24. I had no problem before that.

On a hunch, I removed package libkwinnvidiahack4-3.97.1-1.752045.1mdv2008.1 (using rpm's nodeps option). The black effect didn't occur, but I still don't get a functioning
desktop, just the blue Mandriva background used by KDM.

Machine is Intel P4 with 500MB RAM. Video card is Nvidia GeForce2 MX/MX 400 (using x11-driver-video-nvidia96xx-96.43.01-2mdv2008.1 from Mdv's non-free repository).

I can find nothing out of the ordinary in Xorg or system logs. I did notice a few errors in my ~/.xsession-errors file, but I have no idea whether they're related; I can send the file to you if it would be helpful.
