    Default Upgrade to kde4.1.86 breaks kdm - How do I fix or revert.


    I have upgraded from kde4.1.85 to 4.1.86 last night and now kdm fails.
    There is no kde login screen, I have to login as root and startx, but
    login as me with startx fails.

    How can I revert to previous or fix ?

    I have tried all the recommendations;

    I fixed the line in the /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager from startkde4 to
    startkde since their is no startkde4 in /usr/bin.

    I cleared the kdm log file in /var/log.

    I checked all the repositories, kde42-unstable, kde4 Unstable extragear
    and kde42 unstable community. All seem ok.

    Checked all packages in repo's are up to date, all but games(to save
    some bandwidth).

    I do get this in my /var/log/messages
    kdm[2224]: Internal error: unknown D_* command 112

    Am tripple checking and trying another reboot now.

    I have solved the problem, The auto login was set to a user that has a
    problem with the kde4 configuration. Even after renaming the .kde4
    directory it still could not auto login to the user and was dropping
    back to a shell login.

    disabling the auto login enabled the kdm login to function. The kdm
    changed from startkde4 to startkde in /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager,
    don't know if this was necessary.

    There needs to be better or easier to find documentation in kde
    techbase.

    The change to 'akonadi' in kmail seems to be the culprit in the latest
    kde4.2beta2.
