OK I've done the following steps and I confirm it works:

Install opensuse (i586 in my case) with very minimal installation.

Configure networking, configure repositories.

Install minimal xorg with:
   zypper install xorg-x11-server

Install minimal TDE with:
   zypper install trinity-tdebase

Install iceauth (required for dcopserver):
   zypper install iceauth
(dependency will be added in next TDE build for opensuse)

Configure DISPLAYMANAGER=/opt/trinity/bin/kdm in 
/etc/sysconfig/displaymanager

Fix missing 'Xsession' file (file exists but not in expected folder):
   ln -s /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession /etc/X11/Xsession
(will be fixed in next TDE build for opensuse)

Set default runlevel to 5 in systemd.
   rm -f /etc/systemd/system/default.target
   ln -s /lib/systemd/system/runlevel5.target 
/etc/systemd/system/default.target

And reboot.
It works, tested in virtual machine again.
