    Default BT5 on Macbook Pro Snow Leopard

    I'm running Snow Leopard as my Host OS and trying to run BT5 as my guest through Parallels 6 but every time I start, I get this message.

    I ran the code
    Code:
    rm /root/.kde/cache-root/icon-cache.kcache
    rm /root/.kde/cache-root/plasma_theme_Volatile.kcache
    and instead of 1 bar on the "progress bar" it went all the way up to three, just 1 bar short of booting into the graphical interface.

    What do I need to do?

    Many thanks

    I'm having this exact same problem (I get the same error when I try # startx). I'm also using VMWare Fusion on a new MacBook Pro. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
