I haven't edited /etc/ttys yet; I may. But I think something got broken [mis-CLEANED by fsck or otherwise damanaged during the weekend power-out]. It may be easier to completely remove v3 and re-install kde4. > > The reason kdm can't create its pid file is most likely because you're > trying to start it under your account instead of root. > I'm pretty sure I was in ./root or slash when I logged in.
