Thread: kdm not working

  1. #1

    Default kdm not working

    hi, when I want to start kdm, nothing happens and in /var/log/kdm.log is

    Fatal server error:
    Caught signal 11. Server aborting

    Xorg died, signal 6
    /usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/read_sysconfig.sh: line 75: pam-config: command not found

    but pam-config is installed.
    gdm works well, but I can't turn off computer from KDE, it always switches back to gdm

    You can edit that line, insert /usr/sbin/ right in front of the $. It is a workaround, though.

    I wonder if that's all, because I still have the greeter crash after the latest kde42 update :-(

    in read_sysconfig.sh is this


    if [ "$(/usr/sbin/pam-config -q --fp)" = "auth:" ]; then
    echo "PluginsLogin=generic"
    fi



    so this shouldn't be problem

    * dusinm,

    interesting, because there was no full path in mine.
    What's the version of kdm you have installed?

    Try a "zypper up" and see if kde related stuff gets updated. Also try and simply reinstall that single kdm package.

    Me, I'm using the kde3 kdm now :-(
