The X server died because I was trying to run a window manager I
didn't have, from the .xsession file.  Oops.

The kde apps like kword and konqueror all run ok (even without
those modules named above, dri and glx) , but I can't
find the window manager (kwm) or the panel application (kicker).
Hmmm.  That's a problem for another day.  G'night!  I can
dream in X now... :-)
