Trouble starting a compiled KDE 4.2.4

Hi all.
After building my very own LFS system and installing an Xorg server, I 
decided to install KDE.
So I did. Following the instructions on techbase, I compiled the 
prerequisite and the basic KDE packages -- kdelibs, kdepimlibs, kdebase, 
kdebase-runtime and kdebase-workspace.
I set xinitrc to contain "dbus-launch startkde" and attempted to start 
it with startx. Everything was fine and it ran until the initial icons. 
But then the screen would turn blank and crash. After logging the output 
from startx, I figured that it somehow entered into an infinitive loop, 
but other than that, I have absolutely no idea what went wrong. Any 
thoughts on this matter will be appreciated. Thanks
Joyce Cheng
