Hi, welcome to the Sabayon Linux forums.
I don't know why it is happening, I guess it's some issue with VMWare or a bad burn, anyway it is perfectly normal that if you use startx
to run the graphical session it will default to a minimal session with xterm
(unless you configure it otherwise).
you should use gnome-session
to run the GNOME session.
You could also try to start GDM by running:
- Code: Select all
If some of them fails you can check the logs to see for useful informations, usually those are located into:/var/log/Xorg.0.log
