startx not found for some friggin reason
 
im using gentoo and cannot get x to work
i did emerge xfree, i configured the XF86Config file, did
#rc-update add xfs default
# /etc/init.d/xfs start
# startx
(as specified in the how to at gentoo.org) and it said command not found, i then did /usr/X11R6/bin/startx and got
/usr/X11R6/bin/startx: line 112: xauth: command not found
/usr/X11R6/bin/startx: line 113: xauth: command not found
/usr/X11R6/bin/startx: line 112: xauth: command not found
/usr/X11R6/bin/startx: line 113: xauth: command not found
/usr/X11R6/bin/startx: line 151: xauth: command not found
/usr/X11R6/bin/startx: line 1: xauth: command not found

im thinkin xauth isn't installed... what's the real problem?

Path
 
ZuP!

I had same problem, just update ur path and make it point
to ur XR11/bin dir

in my case:

# export PATH="/usr/X11R6/bin:${PATH}"

and try again :)
