The "normal" behaviour of Sabayon 11 installation media are to bring up a graphical environnment.

If it does not, it means it fails to load or detect the graphic drivers.

Try using "Safe Mode" instead and see if it works this way.

What flavor did you install? Gnome? Kde? Anything different?
Some info on your hardware would help too - lspci.
A log would be also fine - rc.log, dmesg and Xorg.0.log for example.

By all the new topics you are making, you might just want to stop and take some time and do some reading on the wiki as you are getting some pretty weird things. I think this is due to you not understanding what you are doing as you are breaking a lot of things it seems.

For proper help you need to provide

How to reproduce
What you did prior to breakage
What OS/DE are you running

Otherwise it's a cat and mouse game trying to figure stuff out.
