Maybe latest NVidia drivers have been updated to utilize KMS and I just haven't
heard about it yet? AFAIK, NVidia's Xorg drivers require KMS be disabled.

On a 32bit mga6 installation on host gx27b with rv200 Radeon gfx (very old) and
14.0.4 from mga5 sources, last updated 19 June, during urpmi --autoselect I got
	4/36 removing trinity-ksmserver-14.04-1.mga5

Trying to run TDE session via startx in Xorg starts, but
immediately exits with:

	Closing log file.: line1: TDE: command not \
	foundxinit: connection to X server lost.

xinit and xinitrc are installed.

Booted to I can login in TDM (with UseTheme=no configured) and
get a working TDE session.
