Now the liveCD (well usb) doesn't want to display X anymore. This is getting better and better.
EDIT SO NOT TO TRIPLEPOST
OK, somehow I got it working by killing X from the command line. I killed it then the login screen appeared.
But now there's something else: Sabayon won't see my smartphone when I connect it through usb. And that is my only connection to the internet (tethering) for the desktop. Guess I'll skip sabayon until some kinks are ironed out or I get a normal internet connection. Any ideas on how to fix my Ubuntu?
