Fluxbox rpm for fedora

If your default runlevel is 5 you need to add the session to dm. Here is an example of my session file. Make sure it is chmod 755 as well.
[root@xwing jsw34]# cat /etc/X11/dm/Sessions/fluxbox.desktop
[root@xwing jsw34]# ls -al /etc/X11/dm/Sessions/fluxbox.desktop
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 95 Jan 7 12:19 /etc/X11/dm/Sessions/fluxbox.desktop
For those of you with default runlevel 3, then you need to create an .xinitrc file in your home dir.
[jsw34@bullpen jsw34]$ cat ~/.xinitrc
don't forget to chmod +x ~/.xinitrc

i installed fluxbox on fedora too and it works. but when i start fluxbox from gdm it takes 2 minutes to launch (and 1 sec to launch from failsafe terminal)
is your flux starting fast?
i believe this is a common issue with gdm and fluxbox and fedora... (something about utf-8? whatever)
See that.. in short it suggests using 'startfluxbox' rather than 'fluxbox'

I installed fluxbox here and it runs fine but i cannot lead the fluxmenu. Anyway i can fix this? I click on it and the GUI does not load.
To get the fluxbox menu, right click on a blank space on the menu. I put up a default menu from my ubuntu system, you might need to edit it to make it work...
Move this into ~/.fluxbox/menu
