That's weird. I have cc'd our ML admin. Dan, do you have any clues
about this?

# rc-update add console-setup boot

This will ensure console-setup is done on every boot. To ensure your
configuration is correct, you may immediately apply your configuration
at any time by running:

# setupcon

You should not need to copy that file to your home directory (or /root)
to start X11. Your .xinitrc file should contain only the directive to
start your preferred environment. Does it work if you create .xinitrc
containing only the following line:

exec startfluxbox

I hope this is helpful.
