Followup to my own message.

Being new to KDE 2.1, I just discovered the most recent
versions of knode and kmail. Very nice. I'll only need
StarOffice for some MS office document compatibility.

Kudos to the KDE team.

Not a bad way to use some old(er) hardware.

I'm wondering if my staroffice problem may be traced back to
resource problems. I have 2 cores, one kdeinit, the other artsd.

1. Post StarOffice 5.2 install woes w/KDE

VA Linux 6, running KDE, kernel 2.2.17, HP Vectra VL

Set up the box all working fine booting level 5.  Installed StarOffice
5.2 (default config).  Once I restart the desktop, no one can log in
from level 5 gui login screen (tried failsafe, etc.)  Booted from
emergency floppy, mounted, edited inittab to boot to level 3.  Booted to
level 3, no problem.  Started X no sweat works fine as root.  However,
get the same "no can log in" behavior for other user.

Has anyone seen this behavior?  I struck out looking for this in docs.
