I managed to install KDE 4.2 with Xorg 7.4 successfully on PC-BSD 7.0.2, I'm
using nvidia-driver-177.80 though.

One problem is that every time I log into KDE, plasma crashes. There seems
to be some configuration problem (from 4.2beta2), because when I delete
~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-appletsrc, it doesn't crash, but looks weird in
other ways. And when I delete the whole ~/.kde4, it works perfectly OK. I
haven't investigated it further yet..

Anyway, at least it's working.
