amd drivers or kde fail ??

for a couple of days I'm fighting with my slacky. Now I unable to start the KDE (startx), only startxfce4 work for me.
The issue I thougt was with the semi useless amd drivers when installed them I installed fglrx-9.012-x86_64-1.tgz (generated from the script with option --buildpkg).
When I run the tests command I received:

bash-4.2# fglrxinfo 
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series
OpenGL version string: 4.2.12002 Compatibility Profile Context 9.012
Also when I execute:
The animation is started successful.

Only startx seems not working!
When I execute startx the /var/log/Xorg.0.log shows:

Current version of pixman: 0.26.2

Any suggestions will be highly appreciated!

seems you are missing something
/usr/bin/kde4-config: No such file or directory
kstartupconfig4: error while loading shared libraries: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory
I would try a
slackpkg install kde
that should ensure that all the packages from the kde series get installed.

This won't take care of the dependencies outside of the kde series, this is up to you.

To install the remaining package for a full install (the only one supported) for x86_64
slackpkg install slackware64

Thank you ponce, it is working now. It was too strange for me because it was fresh full installation and there weren't such error messages before installing AMD drivers.
