X is running fine. In order to get the user login screen, X must be up.
KDE is failing to start. As pbm said, check the errors in .xsession-errors.
Another way to check is to look at the login screen. Somewhere there
will be an option for a failsafe login. (In xdm it was finish your
password with F1 instead of enter, but gdm/kdm both have buttons to
press). When you login this way, you'll get an xterm. Nothing else. type
startkde, and see what happens.
