Reboot isn't needed to fix things - that's a misbelief
from "Windows" land. :-) Simply SSH into the box and kill

Strange. Ctrl+Alt+Del isn't supposed to have an effect in
X, if I remember correctly. Ctrl+Alt+Backspace should kill
the X server, but doesn't obviously work when no input is
accepted. There's the "DontZap" setting in xorg.conf.

That's correct. Your ~/.xinitrc should at leas contain
an interpreter command, and then the commands you want to
run, e. g.
[ -f ~/.xmodmaprc ] && xmodmap ~/.xmodmaprc
xsetroot -solid rgb:3b/4c/7a
Note that the fluxbox call is to be preceeded by "exec".

Separate options? For flat panel? I must have slept for many
Let's have a look at the log:

Okay, no input for you.
I can't see any further warnings (WW) or errors (EE) in this
log. Seems that X is up and running, and nothing more?
Check .xinitrc and .xsession respectively.
