Try running xconf command before you run startx command
You may need to delete your xorg.conf. Running xconf creates a new one.
Is this a Real install or Live?
real install it is on my hdd.
Someone more adavanced then myself on these forums may be able to help you but it might be just as easy to reinstall. I recommend the live install with persistent changes. Its basically the best of both worlds. Its light on the system, all your changes get saved, and if something gets messed up you will always have the option of wiping your changes file setting you back to a default installation. Search "persistent changes" and you should find the tutorial.
whats happened is you have no .xinitric file. The script to start fluxbox creates one and then rms it to load fluxbox in order to have flux and kde at the same time. I dont believe fluxbox "just crashed" as its faily stable however whats done is done. I would try a few things.
1. make sure your x session is set to kde in /etc/rc.conf
2. do a xconfig like the other fellow suggested or you can do it the Xorg way and do "X -configure". That will create a new xorg.file in root and it will give you directions on how to test it and the copy it to the proper location.
Just as a sidenote fluxbox rocks!!!!
Supersick man.. good work :cool:

As I have said before
