i can't get to th KDE !!
I installed gentoo using the stage3 tarball + GRP installation.And I installed all the packages in the 2nd cd (including kde, kde base, etc.).
Can anyone tell me a method to get my Gentoo linux to start in a KDE session instead of the text-only mode.:mad:
You could edit your /etc/inittab file to start in Runlevel 5 (GUI) instead of Runlevel 3 (text). The line you're looking for is similar to this:
Change the 3 to a 5 and reboot.
You could also do the following (as root):
Then edit /etc/rc.conf to make DISPLAYMANAGER=kdm and XSESSION=kde.
rc-update add xdm default
probably you didn't follow instructions properly
I think you need to edit /etc/rc.conf and add "kdm" as login manager.. the rc.conf already has some examples and you need to just read, uncomment and fill with proper values.
gentoo-wiki.com, go to the howto section and search for KDE, you'll find nice guides there.
