I have looked at both and, even though maybe kdm is derived from xdm
they have diverged too much. Using libck-connector allows to achieve what
the kdm consolekit does, however. And there is an equivalent of
d->serverVT in xdm which would allow to set the X display device like

sprintf(device, "/dev/tty%d", d->serverVT);

However doing things like that seems very odd and non portable to me. In
fact there is no reason why the display manager would know the X display
device since X is all about hiding the hardware. I am currently
discussing that with the xdm upstream maintainer, did you contact the
kde upstream for the patch inclusion?
