Thank YOU :: 3 errors AND Re: paramtere not supported anymore? kern.machdep getting error .... (kde/gnome...)

Thank you Peter, Unix Fan, Matt and all,

1. I was able to streamline my X config by following the below suggested link.
2. I was worried about the "dri" and "fbdev" module loading, because i did not know what they were.  Unix Fan you are ans is great.

That document is seriously out of date, see the warning (red, even) at
the main page at that site, http://www.openbsdsupport.org/index.html

For an up to date guide, http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq11.html is a
lot better place to start.  Then install the kde packages and pay
attention to the package messages.  At first glance it looks like
you're mostly there with the rc.local changes.  The xinitrc and
Xsession edits are not really needed if all you want is a kde desktop.
In addition to kdm startup, modern kde packages tend to want fam
and possibly dbus-daemon, again watch the package messages.

(and I'll save the rant about eejits dumping their barely edited
this-worked-for-me-except-the-stuff-I-forgot-to-mention "HOWTO"s on
the web and leave them there to mislead way past their rm by date for
sometime later)
