Running VL5.8 SOHO. When try to boot into KDE window as I first boot up, get two error messages and then back to the Command Line Prompt. The error messages are:
!) xmodmap: unable to open display ' '.
2) Xhost : unable to open display " ".
I got that same error recently in one of the VL5.9-BETA versions when the settings in /etc/X11/xorg.conf were wrong. Not for KDE so, for xfce4.
May be do another hardware check with vasm to correct the settings in xorg.conf
