Hi again,

I searched the web. I found that someone had the same problem here 
(http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=41226) but no solution. Some 
more information about it :

auth.log : Oct 23 18:19:06 denis-portable kdm: :0[3839]: 
pam_unix(kdm-np:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 
tty=:0 ruser= rhost=  user=denis

Any idea what the problem might be or what I should check ?
