Hmmm.... so it's not that it can't find kdeinit or ksmserver, I was hoping that that was the problem.

If you boot to text mode, log in, then do a X & (which will look really bad, just an X-shaped pointer for the mouse, and a gray background), then switch back to whichever console you logged in on (probably 1 -- so try Ctrl-Alt-F1), then do an export DISPLAY=:0.0 from there, and then a kdeinit, what does kdeinit tell you? I'm guessing there's an underlying error message somewhere here, and this is the easiest way I can think of to find it... but I am running out of ideas.
