What did I miss?

Don't know exactly, as I am quite new to FreeBSD; but I can tell you
what I  did.

After the installation of X11, I created a file in my home directory
called .xinitrc in that file I have the single line exec startkde.

I log into my account, and when I want Xwindows I simply
execute /usr/X11R6/bin/startx.

Here is what my .xinitrc file looks like:
# /usr/X11R6/bin/startxfce4
# exec gnome-session
# /usr/X11R6/bin/afterstep
exec startkde

I can edit it and use another window manager if I want... I have used
all the  ones listed.

Hope some of this helps.

Not really. I want X to start *without* requiring a console login and prompt me for a login in the gui, just like my workstation does.

I can type starx or gdm after logging in as root, but that's not what I want.
