KDE4 drives me crazy

Since a system update during the last days, my system does strange things. As taking a closer look, the troublemakers are related to KDE. My first clue was a broken dependency which causes services to crash – so I ran revdep-rebuild.

But revdep-rebuild didn’t detect any broken dependencies. The logical consequence now is checking the updates applied during the last days, which isn’t a big deal using genlop. Of course, the list isn’t short but there was nothing in it which I would associate with the problems – except for HAL. So I masked the current version and downgraded to see if it has got an effect.

To check my assumption, I rebooted as I didn’t want to mess with restarting the services one by one – and it all came up running smoothly…
