[kde-solaris] unable to get to KDE desktop after logging in

Hello Everybody,
     I tried to install KDE on my Solaris 10 Ultra Sparc box. I followed all
the instructions that were described on
http://solaris.kde.org/instructions.php page. I installed all the binary
packages and patches as described here. I also managed to get "KDE
3.4.332-bit [en_US.UTF-8]" display in the Sessions menu.

However, after I select this, I am unable to get to the KDE desktop. I get a
blue screen (as described in the installation instructions) but after a few
seconds I am taken back the  login screen. I do not get the Konfigurator as
described in the instructions.  I however am able to log on to CDE and JDS
(which were preinstalled). I  do not get any error messages. Everything else
seems to work on Solaris except the KDE desktop.

I'm not sure what is going wrong. Is there any way to troubleshoot this
problem ? Any log files that can help me ? I'm not a Solaris expert, but I
can just work my way through. It would be great if anyone can help me
troubleshoot this.
