slax kde desktop doesn't start

Hı. I installed slax to my hard drive. I am using ubuntu. In fact I think to install xp that partition of my disk but I want to try it on disk. It was ext3 already my partion which disk I was installed slax. I did my job by following commands I quoted. But my disk was sda1 and I changed command according to that. for example I gave some commands like this ( /mnt/sda1/slax )
Then my slax working but kde doesn't start. when I gave startx command it try to start. I can see desktop wallpaper but then it comes to start kde parts it turns black screen. I am giving file type too. What is my fault causing to that problem.

sda3= /

# mkswap /dev/sda2
# swapon /dev/sda2

Starting installation

# mkdir /mnt/slax
# mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/slax/
# mkdir /mnt/slax/boot/
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/slax/boot/ <-Skip this step If you only have one partiton to install slax


# cp --preserve -R /{bin,dev,pentest,usr,etc,lib,opt,sbin,var,root} /mnt/slax/
# mkdir /mnt/slax/{mnt,proc,sys,tmp,boot,root}
# mount --bind /dev/ /mnt/slax/dev/
# mount -t proc proc /mnt/slax/proc/
# cp /boot/vmlinuz /mnt/slax/boot/

Now lilo.


# chroot /mnt/slax/ /bin/bash
# vi /etc/lilo.conf


image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda3
label = Slax


# lilo -v


# exit


# reboot

To be honest you'd be better off posting this in the Slax forum. This forum is for Slackware which Slax is based on but different.
