xfree86 4.3 upgrade probs

I recently upgraded from x864.2 to 4.3 from source works fine......but when i reboot my machine kdm will not start anymore.......i have to login at the console and start the x server from command prompt.

I also edited the inittab file when my machine starts up it shows that its
starting kdm .....but nothing happens all i get is a command prompt......

any input welcome and appreciated.....
