hi
I got stuck in the kdm screen. I think I didn't emerged lxde fully. I say I think because I was doing the process through ssh and connection was lost.

How can I repair?
Moreover the pc isn'connected to the Internet because of some wlan0 not found issue.

Edit: Solved

Check /var/log/emerge.log if all packages got emerged if you are not sure. If it got aborted simply restart the merge. If you are lucky you've fetched all required sources already and you do not need to have an internet connection present. If not maybe a cable-based connection is easier for a start... Or download on sanother box and transfer files via usb-stick or disk to /usr/portage/distfiles/


Btw, when installing remotely via an unstable connection I'd use something like "app-misc/screen" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Screen). This helps you to start a long running process and detach from the session and connect later again if the connection dropped.

EDIT: Also check if you can start LXDE from coomandline directly as a first step. EDIT2:You did that already: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-953072.html
