    GDM Issue


    I have recently installed Sabayon 3.5, I was for some reason unable to use the graphical installer, but the text based installation seemed to go smoothly.

    However, my problem is that when I boot up Sabayon for the first time a message popped up that said gdm was going to be disabled because of configuration, or something to that effect, it also mentioned to configure gdm, and then start gdm again.

    After that whenever I boot into Sabayon all that comes up is the text-based login.

    How would I go about fixing this issue so that I can use the GUI again?

    I have a 7800 GTX Nvidia graphics card, if that helps.

    Thank you so much for any responses in advance!

    Have you tried starting gdm manually

    /etc/init.d/gdm start
    try running
    If it works
    chkconfig gdm on

    thanks for the reply,

    I think I have found the problem though, my power supply does not have enough cables to hook into my graphics card.

    So I am no longer using that graphics card until I get a new power supply, the card was hot when I pulled it out, so I'm hoping that no permaent damage was caused :/
