KDE blank screen

What was the error log from the kernel panic. I have experienced a
number of kernel panic errors and have been able to solve most of them.
I did experience it with LFS 6.4 but managed to resolve it.

Yes, I used the live cd to build my LFS which uses LFS 6.3, and I'm
following BLFS 6.3. I could try to build KDE according to the
development BLFS 6.5. I could also try to search the Internet for terms
in the error log that I sent (sorry that I didn't do this first; I
didn't have time). Alternatively, I could try installing another desktop
environment such as Gnome. I have been using GNU/Linux for about 2 years
now (one year with Open Suse 10.3/11.0 and one year with Ubuntu
8.04-9.10), but I'm fairly new to the command line and this is my first
time successfully building LFS (I once tried LFS 6.5, but it had a
kernel panic). I'm not a programmer or a Linux guru (however, I'm
comfortable with ./configure, make, and make install), so I was
wondering if anyone had any ideas about what might have went wrong based
on the error log that I sent earlier. If you need me to send more
information, just ask. Any advice is welcome, but especially easy to
understand advice since I'm still learning.
