    i compiled new kernel with acpi disabled,and it boots now.
    then i installed xfree,kde and gnome.

    now, when i type
    Code:
    startkde
    it gives no X found like error.
    if i start x first, it starts and i start kde from there, kde starts but it is very strange. windows are not movable,sizable. there is no taskbar etc...

    how to start kde and gnome like other distros?

    this is my 6th gentoo try with no success

    Thank You!
    Have a nice day

    edit /etc/rc.conf there's a line in it that says 'XSESSION=" (w/o quotes).. you can put kde-<version> there and it will start it as the default wm.. i can't remember where the X scripts are atm, though.. just make sure that you don't have a ~/.xinitrc because that overrides /etc/rc.conf settings.
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr
