Help! My X-windows is broken.. I think


I don't know what happened, everything was ok last night but when I boot now the log-in screen doesn't appear, just a black screen and the busy watch... So I press ctrl alt f7 to exit x windows then as root I entered startx.... Now I'm using IceWm.... but I want to go back to my normal WM(KDE) and I want to see the X log in screen again... I don't really know how this happened... Last night I was just playing around with cron, just added my script that makes backups and I don't think it could have affected my X-windows... Please help me...

The log you pasted there doesn't seem like the cause for that thing. I don't know. Hmm.
