kdm is dead

I upgraded kdm a week or so ago, and Konqueror finally 
killed X yesterday.  Kdm comes up, but I don't get a 
background, and the user list is filled with all the 
users in the system.  eww (but I've already seen some 
posts earlier this month on how to fix that).  Anyhow, I 
try to login, and get a message saying something like 
'couldn't find /usr/X11R6/lib/kdm/Xsession' and what do 
you know, there is no /usr/X11R6/lib/kdm directory.  So 
figuring something was hosed, I killed kdm, and tried 
to use /etc/init.d/kdm start.  I get the 'Starting kdm: 
Done' message, but now it doesn't start at all.  I do a 
dpkg --purge kdm, and reinstall, but it still won't 
start.  Typing kdm from a console prompt doesn't do it 
either.  ps -A | grep kdm doesn't show anything.  So now 
I'm kinda stuck.  Anyone care to lend a hand?
