Without the log it's going to be difficult to understand how kde's
vanished from
your  computer.

another DM (such as gdm or slim) should not prevent you to start kde & if it's
thant it's a bug in that display manager i would say.

There's no know issue like this.

>Also do I have to take some other actions to fix my mess ?

urpmi task-kde4 should bring back most of kde
Please note that removing this package could mark orphans a lot of kde
packages so using a urpme --auto-orphans later could remove most of
thoses packages.
