Ok,
I emerged kdebase-meta:4.4 successfully

I tried startkde which gives me $DISPLAY is not set or cannot connect to X server


startx doesn't work either, it gives me

Code:
hostname: Unknown host
xauth: creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.14447

/etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc: line 1: /usr/bin/X: Permission denied
/etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc: line 1: exec: /usr/bin/X: cannot execute: Success giving up.

xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
