Check your installation.
at the moment the box has xfce4 on it and I decided to install kde4 (pkg_add -r kde4). all went flawlessly. I added "exec /usr/local/kde4/bin/startkde" to ~/.xinitrc but when I do "startx" I get the message above.
The box is a remote one. After the error, startx does not exit and if I use x11vnc I see a black screen with a box that says "Could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation" and a "Okay" button. If I click it, "x11vnc" exits but "startx" does not.
However, if I run "/usr/local/kde4/bin/startkde" and "x11vnc" with "-auth" option, I can see the kde4 login screen and after it accepts my credentials I see "Could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation". If I click "okay", x11vnc exits. I was unable to replicate this behaviour - it happened only once (kde does not run without a X server so I'm presuming I had some X process hanging somewhere)
I've been google-ing for quite some time now and I am unable to find anything relevant.
The machine is ~800 km away so direct interaction is impossible.
Any ideas are welcomed.
PS: nothing relevant in messages.log, all.log and Xorg.log. The video card is a nvidia FX5500.
PS2: on a vmware machine, (fresh install of F-BSD 8.0 - kernel+base) I had no problems.
