    Default Fatal error occurs at kde startup


    Hi guys,
    I previously had opensuse 11 with factory build kde (4.0). I also have
    compiz effects enabled. I decided to upgrade kde to 4.1.3. First of all,
    I disabled compiz and switched to kwin. Then I successfully updated kde
    and all dependencies too. At next reboot kde starts loading and finally
    give me an error as follows and leaves me with nothing but a blank
    screen.

    A fatal error occured
    The application plasma workspace (plasma) crashed and caused the signal
    11 (SIGSEGV)

    I am not able to post log here because my windows partitions are not
    writable. How can I change these permissions from failsafe root login? I
    am not familiar with any linux commands..
    Can you guys please help me out?

    Login to icewm
    open a terminal and do this:

    mv /home/uernme/.kde4 .kde4old

    now try kde4 again

    Good. Well done.

    Just to say:
    going by your re-name - you will probably find the old folder is now
    not hidden as you didn't include a .

    > mv /home/akshay/*.kde4* /home/akshay/*kde4old*

    see the difference

    Yeah I got that. Thanks.. I have one more question, I hope you don't
    mind asking it here.

    To access my windows partitions to write data in it, I have to
    everytime start sudo file manager.

    Is there any workaround for this?? I want to access my windows
    partitions with write permissions as normal user.

    Thanks again, changed my fstab accordingly and now my windows partitions
    are also writable by normal users.
