Re: New install of Sabayon 5.3 not accepting username

I found a possible solution here, I'm rebooting to see if it worked.

EDIT:

Yep, that fixed it. I found it though the live help, very useful.

Re: New install of Sabayon 5.3 not accepting username

How did you get into the bash shell once you booted up? I pres ctrl+alt+F1 and all I get is a blank screen, no prompt. Did you fix this through a live enviroment? I'm in one right now until I fix it. Thanx in advance. EDIT: My /etc/sysconfig/authconfig isn't empty, it has this in it: USEMKHOMEDIR=no...

New install of Sabayon 5.3 not accepting username [Solved]

I have had Sabayon 5.3 installed for a day and for some reason I just tried to log in and when it asks for my username I enter it and press enter and instead of it asking for my password it says 'Authentication failed'. Did the last update bork it? It is a really strange porblem. I could re-install ...

Re: Checking the integrity of a LiveDVD/CD

I had never been asked to do this before when a distro didn't install, but from now on i'll check the media I burn.

Re: Checking the integrity of a LiveDVD/CD

Isn't it possible to have the live DVD check on the boot options screen? I remember that Gentoo did this and I'm pretty sure Ubuntu does also. It shouldn't be that hard of a script to put in the liveDVD, other distros do it. I always thought only paranoid people checked but I've had an oredeal that ...

Re: 5.0 install freezes on formatting disk

Well, it appears it was my fault, or my DVD burners rather. The MD5 sum didn't match. I'm still putting [Solved] on it though. I have two other computers that have burners, I'll try to burn with them. I burned all copies in Ubuntu so I'll also try using this burner in SL and see how it works out. Ri...

Re: 5.0 install freezes on formatting disk

Got it installed, just had to manually partition my HD. I couldn't figure it out on the live secession of SL so I booted into ubuntu and did it. I needed to run the command 'gparted' for the gui, I kept running 'gpart', so I could have done it in the live secession and didn't need ubuntu. Oh well. T...

Re: 5.0 install freezes on formatting disk

I have the net and when I update the installer it says it has and quit reloads it, so I'm sure it's updated. I'll try manually formatting it and then installing with that. How detailed do I need to be in the bug report though? Do I need to list the exact model of HD and my motherboard? I've never fi...

Re: 5.0 install freezes on formatting disk

Well, I'm attempting to install it on my main computer now. I noticed that it freezes when it formats the HD, but I am formatting a 1 TB drive, so is it possible that it may freeze for a drive this big? The activity light for my HD is lit up, so maybe its just formatting. I'm going to leave it for a...
