Have a look at /var.log/Xorg.0.log to see if you can figure it.

One way I have taken out of a mess is to stick in the install cd, move to the slackware64/ directory, and for any stuiff you're suspicious of, (for instance kde)put in
Code:
upgradepkg  -reinstall kde/*.t?z
That downgrades all kde apps to the install cd, but doesn't install new ones. It might be done with the x/ directory as well. Then try it.

As I said in your other post, make sure you have a 14.2 mirror selected in your slackpkg mirrors file rather than -current (which I highly suspect is your problem), otherwise you're in for a difficult journey.

A thread i recently started regarding updates to Slackware with multilib support is also useful.
