I've used Sabayon for a few months without major problems, then suddenly I found that it would boot to a blank screen. That is, after the "Booting the system" splash screen, a blank screen would be displayed, and no login screen would be displayed. The system would not respond to anything in this state.
I had the same problem early on in my Sabayon usage, and I was advised then to reinstall from the daily snapshot. This solved the problem then. This time it has not: I have installed the daily snapshot for LXDE, which failed similarly, then the one for Gnome (since this appeared to be more recent), which also failed similarly.
I am pretty sure this is not a hardware issue: I also have LMDE installed, and this works OK.
I can see nothing helpful in /var/log/messages. I would love to attach some logfiles, but have no idea which of the host of them would be of any relevance. I have waded through some of them and found nothing. This is absolutely all the information I have, until someone suggests which logfile they would like to see.
