Thread: KDE 4.2 b2 wont load

  1. #1

    Default KDE 4.2 b2 wont load

    I've just download the latest updates (twice) for 4.2 and am now unable to boot into it

    The message I get is

    Master Resource Control in runleve 5 has been skipped services in run level 5

    So I googled and came up with that I should type in init 5, which I did, no errors. Then I tried sax2 -r -m O=vesa, which didn't fix the problem

    Any ideas?

    I have just updated too. With no problem.

    I don't think this a graphics issue (vesa)

    Did you reach level 5 and type startx
    ?

    ok startx gets me into KDE

    The screen is completely out of whack, not taking up the full screen, the panel is only taking up half the width of the bottom screen, I have no reboot or shut down options, just a logout option, and I have to use startx each time to get into KDE, and it is incredibly sluggish.

    You just ran a command to switch your graphics to VESA!

    You need to run sax2 outside the graphical env. Boot to runlevel 3, login and go su, then do sax2 -r
    (or check for your particular video card etc)

    Not too sure about all your buttons being missing

    You may have to start with a new .kde4 folder
    (mv /home/*username/.kde4 .kde4old) from a CLI
    reboot

    hi, thanks for you help

    What do I have to do to stop having to write startx each time?

    started a new kde4 folder, but still no logout or reboot button, but that isn't a biggie

    First look to see if there is a menu.lst.old in the /boot/grub/ - location you can open with kwrite
    It may have the correct info for you, the kernel MAY be different, so watch for that.

    I edited your menu as above (blue/red)
    RED* vga= will be different to what I quote, your old menu file may have that, otherwise find out what it should be, depends on your resolution screen size.
