I have finally managed to start X with the Xterm windows. Had to rebuild kernel 3 times, restarted from genkernel, followed the instructions above and took a chance in disabling what seemed obviously unnecessary items in kernel configuration.

Have'n t been able to install XFCE4 as wanted because now i have lost internet acess, a problem which I think deserves a new thread. This one has accomplished its mission. Thanks a lot for all the help.

NOt sure you guys will see this as i have marked thread as SOLVED.

Would just like to report that my old G3 ibook dual, 360MB, running on only one core - these macs can't "duo" (meant as a verb) on linux - har just started XFCE4 -for the first time, after about 3 years effort (maybe even more) .

goes very slow, took a few minutes to show the desktop., refused to start desktop settings - by closing the window - and after a while gave me a long list of errors - after praising me for not having started XFCE4 as root. Then refused to startx again after exit and relogging. I may return on another thread in search for help after a few days of googling. But now i want just to sleep and celebrate. THIS FEELS REALLY GOOD. Thanks to you guys!

Congrats Arthur Grandi! :D This sounds more like an Xorg or video driver problem than a XFCE problem.
