KDM not working.

I have installed KDE 3.1.4 from source.  When I run KDM (either from boot,
or from the console) it works OK, until I try to login.  Whichever user I
try with, I get the message:

Critical error
Please see KDM log for more information or contact your system

I have looked in /var/log/kdm.log and it has nothing unusual in.  It is just
the standard message displayed when starting X.  /var/log/XFree86.0.log also
has run as usual.  KDM doesn't crash, it just won't let me log in. 
If I login from the console, and use startx (kde is started from an xinit
file), KDE runs perfectly.
Could anyone help with this matter?
If so, I would be most grateful if you could reply to:

guy <dot> griffiths <at> rdg <dot> ac <dot> uk
since this email address is being cancelled soon.

Thanks a lot,
Guy Griffiths
