to run fluxbox with "startx" commando you should edit your .xinitrc (located on your /root foldes as root, or on your /home/user directory if logged as an user
to edit it correctly you should write "exec /usr/local/bin/fluxbox" after "#start window manager" on the file.

never user graphical logginf screen....
