When I typed in this, rpm -qa xorg-x11-drv , command in the terminal
it gave me this:
[Preston at dhcppc0 ~]$ rpm -qa xorg-x11-drv
[Preston at dhcppc0 ~]$
I am on a buddy's email, so that is why the name is different, I have
been meaning to get my own.
So I guess that it is not installed. The problem is that I can't login
to KDE, I can in Gnome though.
I will give what you said a try about:
mv ~/.kde ~/.kde.sav
