    no. as a workaround to the "real" problem you can do this:

    - type "X &"
    - when X appears, type ctrl-alt-f1 which should bring you back to the text console.
    - there you type "export DISPLAY=:0"
    - and then "startkde"

    but you should fix the bootup runlevel setting. this is the "real" solution.
    Better yet, just run export DISPLAY=:0 then startx. There's no point in making things more complex than they need to be.

    FreeBSD is for those who love UNIX.

    Have you read The Handbook yet?
    How about The FAQ?
    Have you searched the mailing lists?
    Or read any of the man pages?
    Have you searched the web for BSD resources?
    In short, have you done your homework yet?

    I remember seeing this faq question before and was able to hunt it down again. Does this help you out?

    I upgraded KDE and it seemed to go fine, but when I start it, I get a blank grey screen, and nothing happens. There are errors in the console about DCOPserver. What's going on?
    KDE uses several temporary files during it's operation.
    These are usually to be found in the following locations:
    ~/.DCOPserver-* (there are usually two of these, one is a symlink to the other)
    ~/.kde/socket-hostname
    ~/.kde/tmp-hostname which is normally a symlink to the next file:
    /tmp/tmp-kde-USER
    ~/.kde/socket-hostname which is also normally a symlink to:
    /tmp/ksocket-USER
    If the symlinks get broken, usually because a cron or shutdown script is emptying out the /tmp directory, then strange things will happen. These files, and the symlinks, will all be created automatically at the start of KDE so you can safely remove them while KDE is not running.


    jaa

    1. Homepage: www.samba.org
    - they should have binary rpms for the common ditros
    2. www.your-distributor.com ie. ftp.your-distributor.com
    - samba comes with any distro i know.

    to your beforelast post:

    samba does not work on windows. samba emulates a windows network - there is no use for this on windows!?

    to put it into clear words:
    samba makes you able to connect from your windows machine via network neighbourhood to your linux machine and vice versa for centralised network logons and file and printer sharing.
    there is other ways (http, ftp, imap, ...) but this is the standard for windows networks.


    to your last post: this is easy

    look on your cd-roms first. it should be there.

    if not: binaries.
    you wonīt get anywhere with any of the others.

    cd is the command for "change directory".
    you are supposed to type this on a console window after logging in.
    since the readme says "ksamba 0.3.3", this is probably not samba (which is 2.x) but the kde frontend for smbclient.
    sorry, you got the wrong file

    get the file from:
    ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/7.3...mba-client.rpm
    and
    ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/7.3/suse/n2/samba.rpm

    install them via yast (option "install packages") and be happy if it does not tell you that dependencies are missing
