So we look to the [WW] lines.

First, I had to symlink a directory to another:

Code:
 
cd /usr
mkdir X11R6
cd X11R6
mkdir lib64
cd lib64
mkdir modules
ln -s /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/


And this finished my [EE] line issue. Didn't solve the issue entirely.

And theeeeen, apparently simply emerging ati-drivers wasn't enough to pull in the full xorg system. Whoops! Soooooo.... we need the metapackage 'xorg-x11'!

Code:
emerge -NauvD --with-bdeps=y --complete-graph xorg-x11


And because I was using LXDE, and got used to having my xinitrc have a bit more than just the usual 'exec startlxde', lemme show you what I had for a few years that worked beautifully:

Code:

###Note that this xinitrc no longer works!
exec nm-applet & --sh-syntax --ck-launch-session --dbus-launch --exit-with-session startlxde


this no longer works. This invokes a SECOND networkManager applet, but also redundant other stuff that is no longer necessary. I may have to do some more work to see what gives me the 'reboot' and 'shutdown' options back in the logout menu. The options listed used to do that for me, but now cause xorg to crash.

I'm reeling on this and wondering what this xinitrc line really could mean...
Ideally lxde (or whatever desktop environment) should startup nm-applet. Normally all you need in your .xinitrc is to get a consolekit session going with lxde. I have not used lxde but I imagine something as simple as

Code:
exec ck-launch-session startlxde

Or perhaps
Code:
# if nm-applet is not starting, start it here, else remove
nm-applet &
exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch --exit-with-session startlxde


needs to be in your .xinitrc.
