Thanks Mike, I wish it were that easy. I had already checked the
xorg.conf file as well as replaced it with a known good one. Plus, I
have reconfigured more than once to get a new xorg.conf file running
sax2. Checking those things have been part of the process I've been
through thus far. As I mention above, the logs show no errors, that
I've detected and dri as being enabled, but it's a different story when
KDE boots.

Maybe your suggestion will help someone else though.
