Gnome 3, does not start (perhaps the problem GDM)

Hello. I have, after the update, the system does not run with Gnome 3. Instead of a window to login, gives an error. How do you solve a problem? Here is a picture with the error:

Sorry I can't give you a quick answer. Did you look at this wiki article?

https://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?titl ... e_to_FGLRX

About half way through, it says:
"Now! That should fix the graphics card confusion, but you still need to get into the GUI right? Simple!
Just replace sddm with whichever desktop manager you use such as gdm(Gnome),
lightdm(other), kdm(KDE)."

sabayon ~ # systemctl restart sddm

Hopefully, somebody else in here knows exactly what the problem is.

Thanks for the reply. I solved the problem: ctrl+alt+F1>su>equo upgrade. It worked. For the future, I want to know:
1. The problem was in GDM?
2. The problem I have or common?
3. How to solve such problems? For example: How to remove and install GDM?

The configuration of my PC:
CPU AMD Phenom II 1100T
DDR3 1866 8GbX2
GPU GTX760
