Kubuntu 8.10 + KDE 4 = Failed

Posted by jun auza On 11/12/2008
After installing the latest KDE flavor of Ubuntu last night, I am supposed to write my initial impressions about it today, and I expected it to be good. Unfortunately, something unexpected happened. Kubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex" failed miserably after the installation.

The installation was uneventful, and it quickly finished without any trouble.


Then came the glitch. I couldn't get inside Kubuntu's KDE 4 desktop. I can only go as far as seeing the splash image...


Followed by this...

"What the heck!"

Then back to the login screen...


I tried logging in again and again and also rebooted, but the same thing happened.

This is really sad as I'm using the same test machine when I tested Mandriva 2009, hence you can't blame it on my hardware.

Is KDE 4 causing the problem? I don't know and I don't care, because at this point in time, I just want something that works!

Anybody out there who's having the same problem with Kubuntu 8.10?
