KDE and other Login broken after last update

Postby Douglas_E_Knapp » Thu Apr 24, 2014 13:50

I can't log into KDE. If I give my name and password it logs into X but as best I can tell only X. There are no programs, just a little console "window" in the top left of my screen.

Also the sign in to KDE has changed. It now has a list on the left of process and users and then on the right is a sort of normal looking sign in but with a little analog clock there.

I have no idea what to do next to fix this. I am a bit of a newbie but not a totally newbie newbie. :-)

Thanks!

PS I am on the system now from the install DVD from a few years ago.

Have you updated to systemd?

In the console type as root
Code: Select all
eselect init list


And report back here.

Here is the rather strange answer.

Can't load module INIT
Exiting

My system is not having any booting issues, but when I tried to run the command: "eselect init list" I have received the same error message like you: "!!! Error: Can't load module init exiting" and like I said my Sabayon is booting fine!

I'm pretty sure it went away when openrc support was dropped.

Sounds like you are using systemd.

Can you try as root:

Code: Select all
systemctl status kdm

Sorry that took so long. I tried it and it says that it is running and that it is ok.

Next idea?

Sounds like it might be a display driver problem.

What do you get if as root you type

Code: Select all
eselect opengl list

I had this exact behaviour a while back, something didn't work with the transition to systemd.
The command:
systemctl enable kdm.service
Solved my problem.

(Actually getting to that command involved reading and learning about systemd)
