I booted into blfs using runlevel 3.
I started startx manually(this works fine) and then tried to cat the .xinitrc file, only to find the .xinitrc file missing...!
I dont know how it got deleted ..? but it wasnt there in ~
How can I fix this? (Im not sure exactly how to rewrite the file)
As for the gdm logs ive attached them in this mail
When I start gdm manually I have the same problem I get the blank screen with the clock cursor
