I've used gnome desktop environment till 2 hours ago.
I'be change nothing in my config files...

but , when I restart my ibook g4 with gentoo onboard, when I type
startx

gnome doesn't load and it fails while loading the splashscreen ... so I must kill X server pushing ctrl+alt+backspace after many seconds

Quote:

gettons@mactux ~ $ startx


# NOW I PRESS CTRL+ALT+BACKSAPCE
