14 I have this too, when using ati-drivers. I think the nvidia-drivers also
15 have their own dri, so this is okay.

25 This is the problem. /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kdm_greet links to
26, which you removed. It needs to be rebuilt so it links
27 against A simple emerge -1 kde-base/kdm should solve this.
28 Use ldd /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kdm_greet to verify this, there should be no
29 'not found' entries.
31 Better use revdep-rebuild, there might be many other things that are still
32 linked to the old libpng.
34 You could also try to emerge media-libs/libpng:1.2, this will install the
35 old libpng in parallel. At least I do have both on my system, but my kdm
36 inks to 1.4. If the revdep-rebuild list is very long, maybe you can get a
37 working system faster this way.
