"For FreeBSD, edit /etc/ttys and find the line like
this:

ttyv8   "/usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon"  xterm   off
secure

      and edit it to this:

ttyv8   "/usr/local/bin/kdm"  xterm   on secure

    *

      Most other distributions are a variation of one
of these.

At this stage, you can test kdm again by bringing your
system to the runlevel that should now run kdm. To do
so, issue a command like this:" 

http://docs.kde.org/development/en/kdebase/kdm/configuring-your-system-for-kdm.html

-nodaemon is the problem. that is for running kdm from
the command line.
