The error that shows on the login is from ksmserver, I haven't tried to
run it with gdb again to see if the TQTString error shows up, but it's a
fair bet it's the same.

Good to know, my 2 other computers are both running X86_64 and TDE is
working perfectly on both, so this has got to be pretty hardware
specific, but is a bit of a mystery. The software set up on my laptop is
very similar.

Since I had the case open, I also tried pulling out my soundcard and
video capture card, just in case there was some kind of hardware scan
that was crashing things.

None of them stands out.

Thanks, I'll keep that as an emergency backup, IRC isn't really my thing.

I might give CentOS 7 a go, I think I have an install image somewhere.

Thanks again.
