xdm is often paired with other, more modern display managers.

==init==

to start xdm immediately:
 +
<console>###i## rc-service xdm start</console>
  
First, sync the tree if you haven't recently as you need access to a file in the tree:
+
to start xdm upon boot:
 
+
<console>###i## rc-update add xdm</console>
<console>
+

###i## emerge --sync

</console>

+
=== unmask ===

Now, reverse the GNOME 3.14 mask file:
+
 
+
==== package.mask (directory) ====
+
 
+
<console>
+
###i## cd /etc/portage/package.unmask
+
###i## ln -s /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask/funtoo-gnome .
+
</console>
+
 
+
==== package.mask (file) ====
+
 
+
<console>
+
###i## cat /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask/funtoo-gnome >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
+
</console>
+
 
+
=== USE flags ===
+
 
+
Then to simplify matters, enable the gnome mix-in:
+
 
+
<console>
+
###i## eselect profile list
