I am trying to install gentoo on an old desktop I have. I have not used gentoo before, and have run into some problems getting gnome to work
Following the gnome install guide on the wiki, calling 'startx' as a user gives the error:
|/home/sam/.xinitrc: line 2: exec: gnome-session: not found |
My ~/.xinitrc looks like:
It seems to me that the command gnome-session should be installed but is not... "which gnome-session" gives me:
which: no gnome-session in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/opt/bin:/usr/i686-pc-linux-gnu/gcc-bin/4.9.3:/usr/games/bin)
I ran "emerge --searchdesc gnome-session" and found the package "gnome-base/gnome-session"
Installing this package using "emerge --ask gnome-base/gnome-session" did not fix the problem. I am a newbie to gentoo and linux in general so any advise is greatly appreciated!
