Description Bernhard Wiedemann 2011-04-15 07:14:43 UTC
Factory KDE default install no more does (auto)login

+- remove stale 'KDE' entry from X sessions list, replace with
+  'KDE Plasma Workspace'

so possibly the DEFAULT_WM value in /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager needs to be adjusted accordingly

Awesome bisection! Should fix before M1.

Comment 3 Jean-Daniel Dodin 2011-05-31 07:42:28 UTC
none of the 3 kdm options (kde, kde plasma, kde failsafe) work - any gives the same loop version.
if the fix only result is to change /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager, this don't works either (changed by hand, reboot, same problem)

running startx from the root console gives
/usr/bin/startkde: line 368: 2600 Segmentation Fault kwrapper4 ksmserver $KDEWM
Comment 4 Bernhard Wiedemann 2011-05-31 08:57:41 UTC
in http://openqa.opensuse.org/opensuse/video/openSUSE-DVD-x86_64-Build0030.ogv at 0:58 logging into KDE4 works after selecting "KDE Plasma Workspace" as session type

jdd: you should trace+report the segfault as separate problem

e.g. check /var/log/Xorg.0.log
