Hi.
I'm using kdm as the window manager. At the moment it's crashing when I logout ... I get dropped to a console session.
Is it just me?

Definitely not just you. I've been fighting this problem for the last 36 hours or so. Right now I'm having to use gdm and simply uninstall kdm until it's fixed.

There's an easy workaround.
edit /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc

and note the final line below.

      Code:

[X-*-Core]
AllowNullPasswd=false
AllowRootLogin=false
AllowShutdown=Root
AutoReLogin=false
ClientLogFile=.xsession-errors-%d
Reset=/etc/kde4/kdm/Xreset
Session=/etc/kde4/kdm/Xsession
Setup=/etc/kde4/kdm/Xsetup
Startup=/etc/kde4/kdm/Xstartup
TerminateServer=true

Found that TerminateServer=true line elsewhere (I think on a Ubuntu -- gasp! -- forum) but it doesn't work for me.
