    Ok, folks, I would like to report SUCCESS! Apparently I forgot the echo "exec startkde" > ~/.xinitrc
    I am posting this from Gentoo and man, I feel like a Million bucks, now onto the reading and studying that is required of new Gentoo users. Thanks for all your help.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    For completeness and neatness, I would run a
    emerge -C kde && emerge --depclean && emerge kde-meta
    That would clean up your install, and install the programs you want, not in the monolithic package but individually.

    But either way you got it working and you are happy.

    One more thing. I would have just edited /etc/rc.conf and /etc/conf.d/xdm and added xdm to my default runlevel to start kdm. Once again, much cleaner.

    Code is Poetry
