Blank Screen [Solved]

Post by registeragain » Thu Jan 05, 2012 6:38

I can install sabayon on my dell d630 laptop fine but after upgrade I just get a blank screen. Two days of reinstalling and searching the forum, I do love sabayon but I am at my wits end and any help would be appreciated.


Update - installed gentoo so you can delete this post.

Moved to correct forum, not an installation issue. Please post in the correct section for help.

You haven't provided enough information for anyone to help you

What Sabayon did you install?
What hardware?
What are the log files saying for errors?

This is the vital information that we need.

Sabayon Gnome

Computer specs at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd630/en/UG/specs.htm

Since I can't log on I have no way to retrieve any logs files or any idea where to look if I could.

You could boot the LiveDVD, mount the HDD root partition and see if you can read /var/log/messages on the HDD.
