I've been absent for over a year from Sabayon, but as it is my preferred distro I tried the Daily X86 XFXE from 2 days ago and ran the Live boot fine. I then proceeded to install and really appreciated the publicity for Sabayon features displayed waiting for this to finish. I could not wait for the login prompt on reboot. I checked Alt-F1 and F2 messages during boot up ... no problem. Then just prior to the login prompt the machine froze! Just as I had experienced on the last release of Sabayon on a different machine. This was the reason for my absence from Sabayon ... I could not be bothered to seek help ... but now I would really like to get back to using it.
Please note: 1. I did not md5 the iso and now the Daily has changed. 2.I do not want to download another iso, because believe it or not, in the part of the world where I currently reside, the download rates are typically 10 KB/s, that is when the line is stable!
I do believe it is a systematic problem because I have experieced this twice on two releases on different machines.
Much obliged for any suggestions. I uploaded the logs to http://pastebin.sabayon.org/pastie/7232
