I just finished compiling but when I hit startx I get an error saying can't connect to X server, connection refused.

Can you help me? Let me know what to cut and paste for you.

Code:
(EE) open /dev/dri/card0: No such file or directory


You need to enable radeon DRI in kernel.

I have recompiled kernel a few times and it still won't work.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Everything else seems to have worked great. I just can't get a desktop environment.

Try to read here. You have set this option in kernel?

I'm very rusty with Linux. I have compiled kernel a few times now, but not sure I am doing it right. Could you tell me what the commands are to compile and make sure its added to my system?

To check is whether you are running the latest kernel you built -
Code:
cat /proc/version
and check the it the build date/time are what you are expecting.

Commands to build and install your new kernel after saving your .config with menuconfig are essentially
Is /boot mounted? Check with
Code:
grep boot /proc/mounts

mount /boot if not mounted, then
Code:

cd /usr/src/linux
make && make modules_install
make install

Assuming grub2 is the gootloader bootloader:
Code:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

If no errors: Reboot into new kernel.
