Re: KDE4.0 Rawhide in Qemu

Thanks.  I tried that - no luck.  This would appear to be some kind of X11 issue as updating KDE without updating X results in KDE4 loading however it freezes once loaded.
Hopefully these issues don't extend to real hardware.

Last I tried I got this crash:

It appears to be an X11 issue, there's not much we KDE maintainers can do about
it. Unfortunately, the logs are very non-informative, so if I was an X11
maintainer I wouldn't know where to start debugging this. :-( That's probably
why it hasn't been looked into yet.

Maybe forcing xdriver=cirrus (as a boot parameter) helps? Supposedly, QEMU
emulates a Cirrus Logic chip and the cirrus driver is supposed to be working
now in Rawhide.
