KDM

know-how

init calls xdm, xdm calls kdm, kdm calls X and after login, startkde, startkde calls kwin. KDM is the KDE display manager.
Start kdm -> no error msg, return code 0, no action
kdm log is in /var/log/kdm.log
start kdm manually: kdm /etc/opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc

if it logs you out after logging in

  • check if kdebase3-kdm is installed
  • check /var/run/kdm.pid is there when kdm is running
  • (re)-install all of kdebase-kdm, kdebase, kdelibs
  • re-install xkeyboard-config
  • check /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb exists
  • CTRL_ALT_F1 has to work
  • /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-pid has to exist
