someone please help me. in linux KDE is freezeing at “restoreing session” all of a sudden. is there a way to prevent it from trying to restore the session (which I am guessing is bad)? either by pressing/holding a key or by a flag on the command line?
please help me! google seems no help on this matter and I know its something simple
Okay , I have not had that happen to me , but just from looking in my KDE control center, under components and then session mangager there is a radio button for restoring previous session. When you eventually can log in , turn off that button.
What distro are you using ,and what are the options that come up , in either Lilo or grub ? ,it sounds like you have KDE setup to log in automatically when you boot.
And do you know if you have gnome or any of the other desktop/window managers installed. Thats helpful cause I am not sure you are gonna like trying to decipher Vi or vim to manually edit , when I do find the solution.
I can run knoppix, so editing files isn’t a problem… as well as god awful enlightenment but it seems that there must be a simple way to do this… I mean it can be changed with one single checkbox if you can actually get to it
