Error while loading Fedora KDE

This problem happens only in Fedora KDE. When you're on the loading screen operating system, screens fall and report errors. One possible solution to this problem was reinstall the KDE package, but this changes nothing.

Through the "Automatic Bug Reporting Tool" I got the following output:

Package: kdebase-workspace-4.5.2-3.fc14
Latest Crash:
Fri November 12, 2010 18:45:18
/ usr / bin / plasma-desktop - nocrashhandler
Process / usr / bin / plasma-desktop WAS Killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)

The solution to this problem is to switch to a tty (despite the fall of KDE), pressing the following keys:

Ctrl + Alt + FN

Access your user and then use the following command:
su -c "mv /home/your_user/.kde/config/plasma* /home/"

This command does is log in as root and then move the content of your KDE plasma hidden folder to your home folder.  It can help you undo any error.  If there's no problem, you can delete it.


I thank Jacob Solis for the report.  Also thanks to Ben Boeckel and Jim for their advices.
