couldn't start KDE.

I installed a fresh 5_3 upgraded the ports and source. I'm using xorg.
I can run blackbox without any errors. I also installed KDE 3.3.2
latest one. It was running fine at first untill I started installing
few other applications. I'm attaching the error I recieve after
running startx.

Besides that. There is another small problem. xorg.conf refuses the
"Modes" directive. I have an nVIDIA GeForce4 440 Go. Because the
FreeBSD driver from nvidia refused to work with xorg. I used driver
"nv" instead. I can only run 800x600 everything looks huge. I tried
something like Modes  "1024x758" and it refused the directive Modes.
It's unkown.

Any help would be appreciated.
