kdm error

I just did an sudo apt-get update > sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.
Everything installed OK but then there were lots of Khandler(?) crashes 
- I just clicked thru them (closed them) and logged out (to restart KDE 
after all the new KDE stuff got updated). I never got the login screen back.

After trying several things, including booting into rescue mode (startx 
works in the root account) I rebooted and was dropped to tty1. I 
switched to tty7 and was presented with the following:

Starting K Display Manager: kdm/usr/bin/kdm: error while loading shared 
libraries: /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libresolv.so.2: ELF file version does not 
match current one
  already running.
*Running local boot scripts (/etc/rc.local)   [OK]

I was then left with a blinking '-'

Back on tty1 I logged in and tried 'startx' - I got a [brief] splash 
screen, then a gray screen with a small x (like the mouse cursor one) 
for a moment, then got dropped to back to tty1.

Any ideas on a fix?
