Default help with XFree86-4.3.0

I reinstalled all my XFree86 from scratch because my QT wasn't working.
Before I even got to QT, I tried a simple startx with the server exits
immediately with no output.
I was using the closed source nvidia driver but I also tried to native
nv driver in XFree86-4.3.0.

I suspect something is missing.
I suspected no mtrr support in the kernel because of what the nvidia
driver printed in dmesg but cat /proc/mtrr has something (so is it correct?).

Does anyone know what to try next?

mtrr: no MTRR for c0000000,4000000 found

cat /proc/mtrr

That log said nothing but I found the problem.
My default window manage was KDE but I did not have KDE installed anymore.
Instead of giving me an error, it just silently quit.
