Trying to switch. XDM is not starting at default, as per my order. Trying to be able to start GNOME from the CLI, gnome-session doesn't work. Using Nouveau drivers until I can get Nvidia drivers working.
Any advice?

Post the output of;
Code:

# /etc/init.d/dbus status


Code:

 # grep DISPLAYMANAGER  /etc/conf.d/xdm


What happens when you run;
Code:

 # /etc/init.d/xdm start


Did you try startx?

As a regular user!
Code:

$ echo "exec gnome-session" > ~/.xinitrc
$ startx

* Caching service dependencies ... [ ok ]
* Setting up lightdm ...
* Something is already defined on VT 7, will start X later

That last worked just fine.
