After I uppgraded rawhide from a couple of weeks ago to rawhide of yesterday.
it seems not possible to start kde or gnome as a normal user. Starting kde
as root works fine. (note X is running fine. Using failsafe xterm mode keeps
X up and running)
startkde: Starting up...
DCOP aborting call from 'anonymous-776' to 'kded'
startkde: Shutting down...
klauncher: Exiting on signal 1
startkde: Running shutdown scripts...
Starting startkde from the failsafe xterm gives the same error message.
I cant find any more info on waht is going wrong. KDE seems to be very
silent wheng things go wrong...
I reinstalled the whole kde set, and even went back to kde of FC5test3,
but that does not help. Also removing the .kde tree does not help.
Right, solved it.
I needed to remove the fontcache in ~/.rh-fontconfig
