Hi there,
first of all, thanks for this fine distro!
Secondly, I couldn't login after installation. After doing some research I was able to fix the issue.

In /usr/share/config/kdm/Xsession I had to replace line 71 with:
exec /usr/bin/startkde
This might a problem (and a "Good bye Calculate")for all new users.

What stage you used to install?
What disk layout used?
How about free space on hard drive?

Hi there,
as I said, I installed from DVD (following the instructions), don't know, which stage it is.

My disk layout is very simple:
/dev/sda{1,2,3} for /, /home and swap

This is from df -h:

root ~ arrakis
Dateisystem Größe Benutzt Verf. Verw% Eingehängt auf
/dev/sda2 33G 9.6G 22G 31% /
udev 10M 0 10M 0% /dev
tmpfs 376M 1.1M 375M 1% /run
cgroup_root 10M 0 10M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
shm 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda3 75G 26G 46G 37% /home

Hope that helps and greetings from Hamburg

What session chosen on kde? Must be default. What in ~/.dmrc?
