...I borked mine testing out different plymouth themes a week or two ago; since then if I boot to init 5 the handoff from plymouth to X / KDM doesn't happen... I get dumped to a black screen with no keyboard/mouse. The switch-themes script didn't fix it and I couldn't recall how to do this at the time..
Since then I've been booting to init 3 with splash=verbose and then starting KDM manually.. (I rarely turn of the PC off so it's not too much of an inconvienience). Tonight I shall be using this.. and like John it will archived for future use (in my forum history for easy searching!).
