Are you sure about this? What kind of "problems"? I haven't used KDE in 
a while, but starting kdm from /etc/ttys has always been the standard 
method. In fact, you can start other login managers (i.e. slim) from 
there. If anyone else has compiled KDE recently, please report if kdm 
works as described.
