I could not get a proper photo of log messages running in the screen so I typed the list by hand.
There were no errors all OK's

Code: Select all
Log continues where it ended in the earlier photos.

After last line there is a Nvidia splash screen showing Nvidia logo and then darkness once again. No access to terminal with Ctrl+Alt+F1.

Only thing that stands out for me in the list is mounting of /dev/shm what ever that is??

I noticed that there are older Kernels (3.5.0) in the grub list and those boot up better up to a terminal. No desktop for some reason.

Problem solved.
I could not fix the Sabayon with latest Kernel. Fortunately Kernel 3.5.0 booted far enough to get terminal running.
After several upgrade attempts with 3.5.0 (which ended up to a blank screen with no access to terminal) I finally saw the notice about systemd and thought to try it out
Swithing OpenRC to systemd seemed to do the trick.
Code: Select all
eselect sysvinit list

eselct sysvinit set 1

Now I have got a fully updated Sabayon with systemd up and running :D

Sorry for wasting your time Ixnay. If I had paid more attention and read the noticements during updates earlier and switched to systemd in time all this would have been avoided.
Thank you.
