Ok, so comment out that line, place a new line:
exec /usr/local/bin/fluxbox

Save and exit, symlink that to your home directory:
ln -s /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ~/.xinitrc

And then startx...

Cool

Ok, so...

It looks like you need to locate:
'/usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc'

And find an area to add Fluxbox in there. If you post the contents I will see if I can help.

Also, to start fluxbox from the command line I understand you have to type:
startx fluxbox

And it's supposed to start. No need to comment any lines in any file.

If you want to use flux as your default wm, then you would make the entry in:
~/.desktop

And the entry should look like:
DESKTOP=fluxbox

Cool

/usr/sbin/chksession -l

Also, you might need to run this to see what X options you have.

Good Luck, and read that link I provided above, good info there.

Cool

And if i changed DESKTOP=KDE to DESKTOP=fluxbox that doesn't mean it would make flux selectable would it, it would just make it default...hmm i'm still reading....

See this line:
SessionTypes=KDE,IceWM,failsafe,default

I think if you add fluxbox there, that might be your ticket.

Also, what does:
/usr/sbin/chksession -l

return?

I think this would all make alot more sense if I followed along with ya, then I could explain things better.

Anway, I think if the chksession returns flux then you should be good to go...

Hmmmmm in GDM's Login Session tab there is KDE and IceWM...when i click on add session i type in fluxbox....and i can't enter what command to execute...but for KDE and Ice there already are commands...

#!/bin/sh
exec /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession KDE

and

#!/bin/sh
exec /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession IceWM

i can edit and chnage those etc.

But i cannot edit flux's....the window to type the command isn't editable...

hope this made sense..

Might be a button you missed or something... Poke around a bit more, seems like it's always something little on things like that.
