Just installed Sabayon 8 with KDE (I used the one through bittorrent). I'm new to this distro, but not so new to Linux.
Interesting, except that it does not come with vim. So I sought to install it, because... it ought to be there!
Then as I ask to get it, equo tells me I must get some 2GB of dependencies, mostly updates.
Question 1: I just downloaded a 2GB .iso and installed it. Why reinstall the OS to get a text-editor?
Anyway, I just initiated "equo upgrade" to get done with updates in general. I reboot, and get no more GUI. I see for a second the graphical "loading" display with the progress bar, but it goes away, KDE won't start, and takes me to tty1 login.
Question 2: Suggestions to recover the GUI?
I did read some news on issues with Nvidia drivers, but I got IntelIntegrated Graphics Controller here, so I don't think I'm concerned.
Or maybe I picked the wrong choice when doing "equo update conf" (which I did before rebooting). It suggested to perform this, but I could not find documentation about what to do after calling "equo update conf".
