Problem with terminals(Linux)
Ok, I have finally bitten the bullet and started using linux again after *BSD systems just did not have the media capabilities that I desired, choosing gentoo as my distro. Installation went totally fine. When I installed and ran Xserver, I noticed a problem: unless I was logged in as root, instead of terminal programs starting with a standard prompt, only a dark rectangle in the upper left corner would appear, and I could not type anything into them. If anyone could give me any suggestions/tips on why this is happening, I would be appreciative.
