Im currently trying out xfce on a not so new laptop and went ahead and installed xfce 4.8 following the "how to configure xfce" guide under the doc section and everything was running smooth. Last night I decied to make xfce my default wm so i emerged slim as per the guide, added "slim" to /etc/conf.d/xdm, added xdm to run default and this morning when i boot and slim comes up it does not recognize my user/password. When I try ctrl-alt and try to login with no graphical, everything goes fine until the time i issue "startx" at which point i get "fatal error: can not establish any listening sockets"

any suggestions how i can revert to say using kdm as log in manager until i can figure out whats the issue with slim? Thanks in advance.
