Hi everyone,

Been gone a very long time but I've come back to Gentoo now.

First up - I'm trying Gentoo out on Virtual Box before I try to install it fully on my system.

So far I've got as far as getting X starting with startx, only runs an xterm though, and only in 800x600. I can increase the resolution with xrandr but I can't get it to stay in higher res after a restart. I've tried following some of the guides but I'm not getting much traction.

I've emerged the full Plasma meta package and SDDM.

SDDM starts OK, but only in 800x600, but no way can I figure out how to get KDE started. SDDM only shows a "XSession" available and just goes black for a second and then falls back to logon screen after I try and logon

I searched all over and I've seen people referring to startkde and kstart and plasma-desktop but I don't seem to have any of these on my install.

I've hit a wall here, I must have missed something important but I don't know what it is, I'm pretty sure I followed the Gentoo guides to the letter - can anyone please help?

Thanks
Scott
