8 don't think it's the same problem, but for me the xdm startup/runlevel script doesn't work. I think it's because it hasn't been updated to the new runlevel/startup system?
10 > 4. no rc-update or config scripts
11 again, this is the new runlevel system as far as I know. You need to poke around a bit to find the right files to edit etc for configuration.
12 And by the way, I do love the new (dependancy based) runlevel system - kudos to those invloved.
14 > 6. no modules.conf (I've been putting things in modules)
15 by poking around I've found a new directory - /etc/modutils which you can put files in, which seems to do the job of modules.conf. To make changes take effect I've used update-modules (I think), which creates a modules.conf based on all the files from /etc/modutils added together.

19 The "kdm" command run from the command line works perfectly for me(I'm using kde2.2).
