Hello everybody
First I installed Xorg-x11 (with the handbook). Then I installed kde-meta (with the handbook), but when I do the command
Code:

echo "exec startkde" > ~/.xinitrc
startx

Kde doesn't start.
When I try
Code:

xinit /usr/kde/3.5/bin/startkde

It says there is no such file or directory. But first I see the nvidia logo...

Thanks!

you need to probably emerge nvidia drivers (forgot the name of the emerge, but it emerges ALL the drivers for specific class and card name.

I just did this but it doesn't change anything. Maybe it's something in the kernel?? I used genkernel.

You can find the config and log file here:

I think the problem is here:
Code:
FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/share/fonts/misc/" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.

Hello
I found the reason why it didn't work.
Code:
 
FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/share/fonts/misc/" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing.

wasn't causing the problem, this was just a warning message.

The reason of my problem was that KDE wasn't finished with emerging. So to solve this (noob) problem, you only have to resume your KDE emerge...
