Hi all, I'm really new to gentoo, I have used it today a lot and it works fine, I was installing a bunch of things and all. I rebooted the system and now it won't boot into my de, I remember when I rebooted I used init 6 which was probably a really stupid move but it worked always fine when I wasn't in my desktop environment. Now when I do startx, it comes up with "cinnamon just crashed you are currently running in fallback mode" and I cannot move my mouse. Did I totally break my desktop environment? It would be a shame to delete everything since I spent so long installing everything.

Pic of what happens when I try to exit, sorry had to take it from my phone

Any help would be apperciated.
