Re: KDE - "initializing peripherals..."
I've had fanstastic luck with xserver-xfree86 (4.0-4.1). Though, if you've used X3.x a lot, it's a bit different. Have you tried not using KDE? Does it work then? Gnome? Or even just under fvwm or a lightweight window manager? What window manager are you using?
Have a look at the online docs.
If you would like a hand, send out the contents of your /var/log/XFree86.0.log. Or just have a look in there.
