to resume:

1)no way to start in graphic login

2) if i boot with a F12 Kernel, startx works and I can have the graphic 
environment (with some glitches, i.e no wallpaper, resource menu not 
3) with F13 kernel, startx doesn't make me enter the graphic 
environment, I get only an arrow on a blank screen...
