I'm running 5.2 RC-1 on a P2-400 with 512MB RAM using XFree86 4.3 and KDE 3.1.4 with KDM login manager. I'm having some difficultly starting X and I'm not sure if it's KDM or maybe something as simple as fonts.

When using KDE or Gnome with KDM, when I try to logout, shutdown, or restart my machine locks up (black screen or terminal session with no response to mouse or keyboard). Likewise, when I try to start the machine, 4 out of 5 times I get through all the boot messages and then rather than going to KDM I get either the 'login:' prompt and frozen machine or a brief KDM message saying: *kdm*[223]: *Abnormal* *helper* *termination*, code 1, signal 0.

I have seen similar posts but users were able to still get to the kdm login screen consistently after seeing these messages with responses like "Well, just ignore the messages..."

Mine is preventing a clean shutdown and will only get me the kdm login sporadically.

Has anyone experienced something similar or know what to check?
