    Default KDE4.1 beta fails on 2nd Login, OK 1st time?

    I recently upgraded kde4 to the factory repo for 11

    I had tried several times before, but plasma crashed at every attempt to login.
    This time I renamed .kde4 to .kde4old - to create a new.kde4 at login
    It worked!
    But logout and try to log back in
    I get a blank grey screen. No error seen.

    If I delete the newly formed .kde4 folder and try again - It is fine. But logout and back in - the same grey screen.

    Strange. Anyone any ideas please?

    Ok, I'm using the latest kde4 factory with no issues. You may want to update your kde4 packages.

    I still see this behavior, even now that KDE4.1 is 'official'.

    It happens on only ONE of my two machines...the nvidia-based
    one and NOT on the ati-based one, and I've determined that this is
    signficant! [I'm using: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-177.13-pkg1.run ]

    Workaround: If you can live without 'nvidia' driver, at run-level 3, try switching to
    'vesa' driver via:
    sax2 -r -m 0=vesa

    and the problem goes away...I can then logout/in between 3.x and 4.1 ok.

    I am Nvidia, but all is working now. It just came ok about 2 weeks ago.

    Upgraded my nvidia driver to a newer version, released just
    today (30-July-2008), and that FIXED IT!
    Box1: MEPIS-8.5/sidux/openSUSE-11.3M6(broken-wifi/hiddenSSIDs)/XP(32-bit), nvidia 5200
    Lap1: antiX-8.5(KDE4.4.3)/MEPIS-8.5/Vista, Intel 945GM, builtin-wifi->Broadcom-4311(drv=wl)
