Sabayon 7 KDE fails to boot after update! [Solved]

Post by NyBac » Sun Nov 20, 2011 19:53

Hi,
I'm new to Sabayon. I installed today Sabayon 7 KDE version on my Toshiba Satellite L300 (with Pentium Dual Core, 2Go of RAM and Intel Graphics inside). The installation went perfectly, I fell on a KDE 4.7.2 desktop perfectly working, than I was invited to update my system via Entropy. The update was with no trouble from A to Z, but when I had to reboot the computer I'm stopped on the KDM login window : I put my right login and password ==> 1-second-black screen ==> KDM login window again, and so over. I tried with the recovery mode, niente !
What's happenin ?
Somebody could help me pleeeeeaaaase :(
Thanks :)

Hi! Check out my thread! viewtopic.php?f=86&t=25943 I've got the exact
same problem as yourself! I didn't notice this thread when I made my post. Perhaps an moderator will merge our
threads since we obviously have the very same problem!?

Hi

This problem seems something like this

Your session doesn't start because you have an old gcc version setup

check your gcc version and set it.

PS : press CTRL+ALT+F1 for a new terminal ; loggin as root and set gcc

I hope this fix ...

Thanks sabayonino! :)

@NyBac:

This is what you do:

1. CTRL+ALT+F1 and log in as root as sabayonino said.
2.

Code: Select all

gcc-config -l
Here you'll probably see that the current gcc version is marked with an asterisk 4.5.3*
but we want the newest version. You'll see that it probably is listed beneath : 4.6.2

3. This is what you do to use this newest version instead:

Code: Select all

gcc-config 2
If your gcc list was identical to mine, the newest version was number 2 in the list,
hence the number...

That fixed it... But I'm not even sure what gcc is :alien:
