IT depends on the graphic card that you have.  ie, some of the cards like ATI display the Fedora infinity logo correctly, others maybe Nvidia just show the progress bar, this depends on your graphics card.  Which graphics card do you have?

This is normal, if you are using CLI/command line yum, the PackageKit kicks in and tries to connect itself, but since yum is running already from command line, it complains that it cannot get the "exclusive Lock".

This should not happen, rawhide packages are not signed.  Maybe a bug.  Also the way that you are trying to install KDE is different than I have seen.  As long as it works it is OK.  I have seen it recommendend to do a 
# yum install "K Desktop Environment"
