Ok, so i decided to try fluxbox, so i installed it with pacman -S fluxbox. But when i go into gdm, only enlightenment and xfce4 show up as options. so then i tried modifing .xinitrc nad that didn't work either, but then fter a few rebboots it did...later on i tried xdm an that send me to wmaker which is commented out...any suggestions?
also, if i'm not clear enough i'll explain it better in the morning, sorry
XDM uses .xsession, you can symlink it to .xinitrc to get the same behavior whether you use startx or xdm.
$ ln -s .xinitrc ~/.xsession
