i’ve tried everything, debug mode gives me some weird loop thing, disabling kernel modules doesn’t fix it either. ive even tried removing my gtx 1650 to boot with the intel graphics and it still doesn’t fix it.

when i go into the journal i get:

sabayon systemd[1]: Failed to start Setup Virtual Console.

i haven’t found anything about this failure relating to sabayon, only say one on the openSUSE forums and something about it on standard gentoo, but neither are on the live installer, and with standard gentoo i dont get this error even with my gtx 1650 installed

im on a dell xps 8930 btw, i cant switch my initial gpu, the bios automatically picks the dedicated card if it’s installed so i gotta remove it to switch to the intel one.
