Why did you not install bluewhite64 or Slamd64?
How is that question relevant?

DO NOT run 'startx' as root. Root is not meant to be used as a user of the system; not running applications as root provides a more safe environment if an application tries to do something it should not.
And if you do see this happen again, please continue in this thread (since you already started one here, why not keep it?)
Oh, and if the window manager freezes again, try the key combination Ctl+Alt+Backspace. This kills it and restarts it (you LOSE what you are currently working on, if not saved)
