Hello,

I've completed a fresh install of Gentoo. I can start xorg-server when I run startx, but I when i type xdm I get a brief flicker (failed load). I've reviewed the xdm log and it indicates that there are no screens. I've also tried slim and sddm, slim fails with can not connect to X Server and sddm gives me a blank screen. I compiled using gles1 gles2 gles2 instead of standard opengl, not sure if that is the issue. If someone could help figure out why xdm or any login manager will not start it would be greatly appreciated. I've attached all relevant configs in the link below, if you need anything else to help me with this let me know.

Thanks in advance.

whatever you use as xdm shouldn't be directly started by a user.
configure your wm in /etc/conf.d/xdm (it's well commented) and the start it with its initscript; eg
Code:
/etc/init.d/xdm start
or add it to a runlevel to be started automagically.
GOOD LUCK!
