nonfunctional root desktop after oem config
Binary package hint: oem-config
Kubuntu alternate amd64, Gutsy final, OEM mode installation: After performing the 4-step OEM configuration, the computer was busy for a while, then left me with just a blue background, no panels at all. I can open a context menu which indicates that this is half of a KDE session for root. Logging out complains about "cannot connect to the session manager" and does not work.
After killing the X server with Ctrl+Alt+Del, I get an error "X failed to restart" (I attach a screenshot), VT1 has a root shell, but is dead.
I logged in on VT2, restarted kdm, and now everything is happy.
