Has anyone tried upgrading 11.4 to the latest SC 4.6.2 packages?
Steps I did was installing a super clean fresh 11.4 64-bits from DVD, using no other repos than the standard ones.
Then I added KDE4.6 Upgrades repo and I went to Yast and selected SWITCH PACKAGES from the repo installation list to those in KDE4.6 Upgrades. I used the following web page to guide me Install KDE4.6 in openSUSE!
But then when I come back to KDM and enter my PW, a second after I press enter it reverts back to KDM screen, no errors. I checked Xorg.0.log file and I found stuff regarding NOUVEAU driver, so I decided to start all over again but install proprio drivers of nVIDIA before performing the 4.6.2 upgrade.
I then tried selecting packages myself from the upgrade repo, same result. I also tried the switch packages function but then manually removing KDM 4.6.2 and keep 4.6.0, same result…
I don’t know where to look for to troubleshoot that.
I can confirm that, it happened to me too.
A very simple work around for me was(not much time to debug/dig more), logged into IceWM, open dolphin or any file manager, go to your home dir and rename .kde4 folder, log out and log back in to your normal desktop. I assume this is fresh installation for you.
OR, in terminal mode:
Yes I tried that but it’s funny the KDE Plasma Workspace and KDE Plasma Workspace (Failsafe) both log me in as Failsafe session…
Then if I use Default as the session type, I get that KDM screen reset again.
I checked ~/.xsession-errors and there was something about INPUT_METHOD being invalid, not sure that’s the reason…
