Interesting problem getting into graphical mode
I'm using Kubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake) and have been having no problems.Recently adept was letting me know there were upgrades avialable so I let it go ahead with it. I noticed two didn't update, both relating to the AMD K6 version of the kernel (I can get which ones if this will help). After it finished I just closed adept and figured I'd look into it later. I'm running a dual boot (win 2k on another partition of the same drive) and didn't think about it. I went back in the other day and tried to login.Here's the scenario I'm at now. The KDE login screen appears. I login. The screen goes black (didn't used to I don't think), I see an icon similar to what I've seen on a Mac as the busy icon (it's kind of like a watch face with wristband/tabs at the top and bottom), then it comes back to the login screen, now with my password gone. I've tried a default session, kde session and failsafe session, all with the same results. If I tell it to go to a shell, I can login with out issue, I muddled my way through using Vi to change my menu.lst for grub to make Windows my default, but I'm at a loss as to how to even begin troubleshooting this issue. I could probably just reinstall, but I'd like to actually learn how to fix this.I would describe my level of experience as "I can be trusted with a water pistol." I work for a web hosting company and have a BS in CS, so I'm not scared of the command line or tinkering, but I don't know the file structure or commands that well. I can follow written instructions well. I'd appreciate any insight you can give me on the followinga) this specific problemb) resources that might help me start troubleshooting any future problemsI've tried to google around a bit for it, and seen a few fixes for starting the graphical interface, but mine is starting fine, just not letting me login.Any help is appreciated!
