Please try to have a complete message in your actual message.

When you boot up do you get a console login screen where you can log in manually?

If so, log in as root and type "KDM" and see if KDE starts or report back what error message you receive.
Thanks!

Yes. Start YaST from command-line and re-install the KDE packages from CD.

You're supposed to add extra package sources for the local suse mirror.

Check out opensuse.org/download to locate your closest mirror and then add all the Suse approved install sources located in the sticky in the Suse Forum.

Then once you add them all, you'll want to make sure "Refresh" is on for all internet sources and then go to Software Management and select "Installed Packages" from the drop down. Check the "Keep" box and in your list you'll see some packages red, black, and blue.

Blue = update available
Red = you have a newer package installed than whats available (dont touch these)
Black = package installed.

So basically, just click all the blue packages so they have the "lightning bolt" next to it and then click Accept. The "lightning bolt" is to upgrade package.

Once its all done, then reboot and you should be good to go.
I'm on KDE 3.51 and it works great.

How were you upgrading in the first place? You need to add the Suse KDE supplementary repos to your YAST sources then do YAST -> Software -> Software Management -> Filters -> Package Groups -> All, and then right click on any package -> All in this list -> Upgrade if newer version is available.
