Question KDEinit error in gentoo


ok so im a total noob to linux and decided to once again install gentoo back onto my system.. i had it working once but i formatted it due to some sound issues.. anyways, i reinstalled it last night and installed kde.. i got past the setup wizard for kde and when it went to the startup screen i get the message "Could not start kdeinit, Check your installtion".. anyone know how to fix this?

just out of curiosity, if you are a total noob, why are you using one of the most difficult known distros to work with?

Have you tried opensuse?

it wasn't that hard... i found a guide to install it onto my ps3.. took me a little over an hour to get everything setup.. i figured that the emerge command would make installing things a little easier so.. yeh.. but i spent like 15 hrs thursday-fri emerging gnome and used that for a bit and then switched back to kde and it's working now so yay
