after rebooting the kde3 to kde4 migration tool started????

Edit: It killed even more ... my .icedove folder still has the mails but all the settings are gone. .config/chromium is virgin as well. Skype account is gone. ???

If the kde3->kde4 tool asks for a backup something must have gone wrong. I would suggest to manually backup you home. Just in case.

can you give us a list of what was upgraded? (/var/log/dpkg.log)
this sounds very unusual. what would trigger kaboom?
what kde version are you running?
i have not seen anything the like on 3 kde boxes.

Is your hard disc out of space? The problem sounds if somehow some files/directories in your home dir have been deleted. But has it really to do with the D-U? I do not think, that KDE packages would delete chromium or other non-KDE files nor vice versa.

I did an D-U yesterday without any problem (32bit). This morning the following new packages would be upgraded:
      Quote:

acpid (2.0.8-3 => 2.0.8-4)
ca-certificates (20090814+nmu2 => 20090814+nmu3)
chromium (10.0.648.133~r77742-1 => 10.0.648.204~r79063-1)
chromium-inspector (10.0.648.133~r77742-1 => 10.0.648.204~r79063-1)
libatk1.0-0 (1.32.0-1+sid1 => 1.32.0-3)
libatk1.0-data (1.32.0-1+sid1 => 1.32.0-3)
libatk1.0-dev (1.32.0-1+sid1 => 1.32.0-3)
libcairo-gobject2 (1.10.2-4 => 1.10.2-5)
libcairo-script-interpreter2 (1.10.2-4 => 1.10.2-5)
libcairo2 (1.10.2-4 => 1.10.2-5)
libcairo2-dev (1.10.2-4 => 1.10.2-5)
libiodbc2 (3.52.6-4 => 3.52.6-5)
libiodbc2-dev (3.52.6-4 => 3.52.6-5)
libmusicbrainz4c2a (2.1.5-4 => 2.1.5-5)
libpango1.0-0 (1.28.3-2~sid1 => 1.28.3-5)
libpango1.0-dev (1.28.3-2~sid1 => 1.28.3-5)
libx11-6 (1.4.1-5 => 1.4.2-1)
libx11-data (1.4.1-5 => 1.4.2-1)
libx11-dev (1.4.1-5 => 1.4.2-1)
libx11-xcb1 (1.4.1-5 => 1.4.2-1)
rsyslog (5.7.8-2 => 5.7.9-1)
xserver-common (1.9.4.901-1 => 1.9.5-1)
xserver-xephyr (1.9.4.901-1 => 1.9.5-1)
xserver-xorg-core (1.9.4.901-1 => 1.9.5-1)
xserver-xorg-dev (1.9.4.901-1 => 1.9.5-1)

These sound all very uncritically regarding your problem.

I was assuming it had to do with the du. No I have 10GB free space. kaboom got triggered on my first log in.

Maybe this is the case. But I think that more people would run into this if it is a general problem.

I guess that the files were lost somehow before the login. kaboom gets triggered on login AFAIK if some kde4 config files do not yet exist.

You could try to boot a live CD, mount the hard disk read only and do a file system check. Maybe the file system is corrupted.

Can you find some warnings/errors in the syslog?

A dist-upgrade will never touch any file in ~/. You need to start an application in order to create/change files there. Add, that KDE from experimental does not belong into our "Upgrade Warnings" - moved.
Greetings,
Chris
