First install Xorg. You should have compiled your kernel and the nvidia module keeping in mind the need to run Xorg.
Changes to make.conf:
emerge -pv xorg-drivers
Finally try a startx
If you momentarily get a blank screen, X may be setup correctly. Can test with emerge twm (but remeber to unmerge them)
emerge -av kde-meta
If there are use changed you need to write:
emerge -av kde-meta --autounmask-write
(Watch for another command which writes merges the changes to config files)
After installing and compiling packages of KDE, we can try to start kdmkdm[/code]
If all went well, KDE should start. I got a few errors with dbus and consolekit, which caused KDM to show windows without the resize/min/max buttons, and a few error message popups.
Consolekit session failed to connect to socket.
First see if dbus starts fine:
If it does, then:
rc-update add dbus default
rc-update add consolekit default
To make KDM start automatically at boot:
sudo emacs /etc/rc.conf
Add the line:
Then add xdm to default runlevel:
rc-update add xdm default
