No, it is just another applet, but works with network manager 0.9.x


I think that instructions on "Further KDE Packages" should do the trick.

I have PAM installed and it needs 2 config files. I guess it isn't case 
for you.

I also have /var/log/kdm.log, but it does not contain anything useful.

I looked at Archlinux pkgbuild and install files and KDM seems to 
require seperate user, just like GDM.

This did the trick for me

groupadd -g 37 kdm
useradd  -u 37 -g kdm -d /var/lib/kdm -s /bin/false kdm

install -d -o kdm -g kdm /var/lib/kdm

I have this in my post install script (not any package manager, just 
plain cp -r and such).

If this doesn't solve problem for you, then you can hope that Ragnar 
will show up and try to help you because he wrote KDE instructions and 
maintains them in BLFS. I installed mine differently, ie everything into 
/usr, no env vars, no /etc/kde sysconf dir and such ...
