    emerged xorg-x11 fluxbox last night by chrooting from the liveCD. How do I configure it? I rebooted and took the CD out.

    All I know is that I emerged xorg-x11 fluxbox last night and it was finished when I woke up. Had to go to school so I wasn't able to mess much. I just need the GUI to run when the computer starts up.

    I used Mandrake before this so switching to Gentoo is a big step.

    If I have understood your problem correctly, all you have to do is edit/create the ~/.xinitrc and add:

    Code:
    exec fluxbox
    or

    Code:
    exec startfluxbox
    dependign on the version of flux you installed.

    the, just startx on the command line.

    If you haven't configured X yet, just run xorgconfig


    Hope this helps.

    i use: vi ~/.xinitrc
