What a lovely generic question... Here's another... How do you use Google or the Gentoo website?

emerge fluxbox && cat /home/gentoox/.xinitrc | sed "s/startkde/fluxbox/g" | sed "s/startxfce4/fluxbox/g" > /home/gentoox/.xinitrc.tmp && mv /home/gentoox/.xinitrc.tmp /home/gentoox/.xinitrc && reboot

Please try to read manuals and work things out yourself, thanks!

Yeah, that error would be because you cant type. Start again.

Probably because you screwed up first time...

echo "fluxbox" > /home/gentoox/.xinitrc && chmod 777 /home/gentoox/.xinitrc && reboot
