no window manager sessions work

Post by skippy204 » Wed Nov 08, 2017 20:40


I have a pretty new installation of Sabayon. In the process of updating something blew up.

When I get the login screen I have the following choices for sessions:

e16 - gnome2
e16 - kde

I have tried them all and none of them work any longer. I know that plasma previously did work.

Also in the login box I have
a dropdown menu that says "other"
a user name field
a password field

I mention this because I have a laptop running Sabyon which does not have this "other" dropdown.

I don't know if this is significant.

Are there any log files or such I can post to assist in diagnosing the problem? Just let me know. Thought it might be next week before I can respond. Busy week/weekend of work.

Thanks very much.
