Did you create a .xinitrc file in your users home directory.
su into root
Which WM/DE are you trying to start.
If it is kde, put one line in your .xinitrc file
f it is not kde, let me know, I will provide more instructions.

I have to type root not su and when i was in root i did
nano .xinitrc the file is blank,The reboot after install was fine all [ok] on left
so i must of missed somthing out?
Kde or gnome would be fine.
The kde and gnome seem to be in my /etc/make.profile/make.defaults
Are they needed to be else where to fire up the desktop.

did you install X?
You have to have this before you can install a WM like gnome, kde, blackbox, fluxbox, etc.................

f you don't use su to get into root, but just login as root, when doing the nano .xinitrc.
you will need to do
Otherwise you will have roots path.
Is there a reason that you don't have an internet connection on this pc? Or i it a configuration problem.

You shouldn't be using Gentoo.
Logging in as root and not using 'su'?
You shouldn't be using UNIX.
