  1. KDE3.2.3 on Linux: kreadconfig produces a "bus error"

    Hi,


    since $SYSADMIN changed the configuration of my computer's swap space,
    KDE won't start on my Debian Linux box. I have a "private" installation
    of KDE 3.2.3 (hence $SYSADMIN isn't responsible... *sigh*), and that
    used to be ok until recently. Here is some more info:

    I use startx with my .xinitrc being

    xmodmap -e "remove Mod4 = Meta_L"
    xmodmap -e "remove control = Control_R"
    xmodmap -e "keycode 115 = Multi_key"
    xmodmap -e "add control = Multi_key"
    startkde

    (the xmodmap commands I use to enable some special German characters). X
    starts up, but then shuts down after a second and I have a screen of errors:

    /opt/kde3.2.3/bin/startkde: line 158: 3156 Bus error
    kreadconfig --file kpersonalizerrc --group General --key FirstLogin
    --default true --type bool
    /opt/kde3.2.3/bin/startkde: line 161: 3157 Bus error
    ksplash --nodcop
    /opt/kde3.2.3/bin/startkde: line 165: 3158 Bus error
    LD_BIND_NOW=true kdeinit +kcminit +knotify
    Warning: connect() failed: : No such file or directory
    /opt/kde3.2.3/bin/startkde: line 182: 3159 Bus error
    kwrapper ksmserver $KDEWM
    startkde: Shutting down...
    Warning: connect() failed: : No such file or directory
    Error: Can't contact kdeinit!
    startkde: Running shutdown scripts...
    startkde: Done.

    I haven't the slightest clue what these errors mean and what causes
    them. Any ideas? And where is the relation to changing swap areas? There
    used to be 2 GB swap on my first disk, now there is 20 GB on the second
    disk. But why should KDE care?


    Any hints appreciated!

    You're sure you're running the right installation? This doesn't look private
    to me but system wide.

    Yes, that's correct. /opt is a link to a private data area.


    Cheers,
