live dvd login trouble

Post by drylandfish » Wed Oct 07, 2009 2:54


Please excuse this post if this has been covered. If so, I couldn't easily find it by a forum search.

I recently downloaded a live dvd image of Sabayon 5.0 and burned it to disc. When booting from the disc I get a login screen with fields for user and password and a button that looks like a play button beside them. I read on the wiki that the proper answer to both these fields is "sabayonuser". I tried this. The screen goes blank for a moment, the dvd spins and I arrive back at the login screen with no error message.


Thank you.

you will have to access the log files as to find out what is up

did you check the md5sum of the iso? burn it slow as possible?
