    Default Could not start kdeinit. Check your installation.

    Hello. I just recently downloaded BT3-final, verified the MD5, and burned the ISO to a CD. Put the CD in my laptop and booted up. It looks like the boot is going ok, but then I get a window that says "Could not start kdeinit. Check your installation." I click ok, but the window keeps popping up. Do I need to customize something before I burn the CD? Does the live CD need a minimum amount of physical memory for a ramdisk? Thanks.

    I have the same problem. I was updating some KDE files with slackpkg tool, and some files were over-written with new ones. I am now getting this error. It probably is getting the wrong path. kdeinit is in /usr/bin, I don't know which file is calling it though.

    re-burn the .iso at a slower rate. like 1x
    you could also try changing the options on your boot.. tab i think, depending on which you selected
