Ok I will have a look there

I did also have kde installed to /usr.  I have used prefix=/usr for all 

I have found out that KDM does indeed need its own usr/group.
I now have kdm working as I can now login and boot the machine to run 
level 5 from inittab and it works.

I have a Console kit error dialog on login saying Warning: Cannot open 
ConsoleKit session: Unable to execute program 
/usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper: Success

This I have traced to dbus not started, but I have dbus starting run the 
init scripts at boot through the blfs-bootscripts.

Also in the kdm log it has klauncher kdemain: No DBUS session-bus found. 
Check if you have started the DBUS server.

I know that dbus is indeed started but how does one check to see if a 
dbus session exists?

This is what I think this problem resolves to.
If anyone has a link to all this dbus stuff I would like to get that so 
I can read up on dbus.

Also I heard but have not been able to confirm that ConsoleKit is not 
required anymore as PolicyKit has all the ConsoleKit stuff.  Can anyone 
confirm this?
