I see this thread is marked as solved, and I've carefully read through it, but I'm not sure which post is the solution. It seems like every solution that's presented is disputed.

I'm still stuck at:

Code: Select all

[blocks B     ] <sys-apps/baselayout-2.0.0_rc (is blocking sys-apps/makedev-3.23.1)
Has anybody figured out what is blocking this?

you have to unmask
sys-apps/baselayout

Code: Select all

echo "sys-apps/baselayout" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
than you have to

Code: Select all

emerge baselayout --nodeps
now the fun part is the 30 config files -- there are important ones in there so make sure you check them

Yeah, but has anyone figured out how to get xdm back after this?

I'm running 3.4e x86. I've gotten it back by changing the xdm to kdm in /etc/conf.d/xdm, but now I don't have the Sabayon login box. I get the KDE login box instead.

Thanks,
Brian

Easiest way is to use the KDM Theme manager

Control Center - System Administration - KDM Theme Manager
---------click on Administrator Mode - enter password
-----------Check or X the box Enable KDE Theme
------------Select BCOpenFuture

logout of KDE and presto, all betters

I just got this xdm error while rebooting...

Code: Select all

/etc/init.d/xdm: line 119: ebegin: command not found
/etc/init.d/xdm: line 121: save_options: command not found
/etc/init.d/xdm: line 133: eend: command not found
 * ERROR: xdm failed to start
Is this the same error everyone else is talking about?

My temporary workaround was to unmerge makedev, and downgrade baselayout to 1.12.10-r4.

My system boots now, and all the errors I saw were related to my timezone going back to the factory default (I missed that when re-merging the etc scripts).

But I honestly don't know the purpose of makedev, so I'm taking a risk by unmerging this package. I would hate for other users to assume this is a solution. It's just the work-around I'm implementing to get my system back on it's legs while I sort out this issue.

Yeah, I got the same error. I somehow got past that by editing /etc/rc.conf or something like that and replacing DISPLAYMANAGER=xdm with
DISPLAYMANAGER=kdm

I'm getting the timezone error, how do I correct that?

Thanks,
