Switching from Gnome to Fluxbox or Enlightenment in Gentoo
My question is this: If I want to switch from Gnome to something like Fluxbox or enlightenment in Gentoo what should I do. Do I have to unmerge the gnome environment. Change use flags (to what yet I don't exactly know) then emerge fluxbox. Then do the emerge update ( i forgot what the exact command is but something like deep clean, update ....etc...) If this sounds basically right let me know or completely wrong or anyother advice.
I really want a lighter desktop environment for my laptop especially and higher configurability for my desktop.
Thanks in advance!

You can have gnome and enlightenment installed at the same time, just type this in a terminal as a normal user after emerging enlightenment:Code:
echo exec enlightenment > ~/.xinitrc
