Please attach your "/var/log/boot.msg".

One has to find out which type of precompiled
redhat kernel is running.

Thanks guys, with your suggestions, my X is finally up and running. However, I still have a final bit of problem.

When I logout of KDE, words go by my screen and the last few row of error messages are as following. At this point, the screen is flikering and dimmed (hardly can read the words on screen). But, when I re-startx, I can go in KDE fine.

kdeinit: Sending SIGHUP to children
warning: leaving MCOP Dispatcher and still 15 object reference alive.
-Arts::SampleStorage
-Arts::Synth_MULTI_ADD
-Arts::Synth_MULTI_ADD
-Arts::Synth_PLAY
-Arts::StereoEffecttack
-Arts::Synth_BUS_DOWNLINK
-Arts::SoundServerU2
-Arts::WavePlayObject
-Arts::Synth_BUS_UPLINK
-Arts::Synth_BUS_UPLINK
-Arts::WavePlayObject
-Arts::WavePlayObject

-Arts::MidiManager
warning: leaving MCOP Dispatcher and still 198 type alive
KLauncher: Exiting on Signal 1
waiting for X server to shut down
[promt]$kdeinit: Sending SIGTERM to children
Kdeinit:Exit

I need to Ctrl-C to get to promt from last line Kdeinit:Exit.

Is this normal or there are tweak that I can perform in order to logout from KDE and go into normal text promp (level 3).

Thanks for any help.

It's entirely normal. You could patch kdeinit so that it doesn't print out those last 2 lines, but I'm not sure it's worth it.

It's not actually a lockup, it's just that after bash got control back, a background process (kdeinit) printed something else to the screen before it died. Ctrl-C gave you a prompt back because that's what it does normally -- hit it sometime when another program isn't running and see. Just hitting enter should do the same thing after you log out of X.

You could just startx from after the kdeinit:exit line, too, and it should work.

Well, cannot reproduce the behavior on my kde 3.0.

But if i do terminate kde-X-session by ctrl-alt-back
i also have to push ctrl-c to get the text console prompt of the shell
, just an 'enter' doesn't work.

So, as for the shutdown problem i would like to ask whether or not
does it make any difference in the behavior whenever Oswald terminates X
by kde shutdown via mouseclicks or just by ctrl-alt-back more 'brutally'.

Mouseclicks or just by ctrl-alt-back more 'brutally' will produce the some results. However, why my screen started to fliker and dimmed (when back in bash) after I log out of X?

Thanks
