I recently installed Sabayon Linux 19.03 XFCE Edition.
After reading that the sabayon-weekly repo is no longer maintained, I enabled the sabayonlinux.org repo, after which I issued ‘equo upgrade’.
The upgrade removed LightDM for some reason, so I reinstalled it.
Now I am facing the issue that the service cannot be enabled (or started manually).
# systemctl enable lightdm Failed to enable unit: File /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service already exists and is a symlink to /usr/lib/systemd/system/lightdm.service # systemctl enable display-manager Failed to enable unit: Too many levels of symbolic links
I also tried to launch the service directly, however:
# systemctl start display-manager Failed to start display-manager.service: display-manager.service not found.
#systemctl start lightdm
This attempts to start LightDM, but I just get a blinking X cursor and after several blinks a blinking console cursor.
What am I doing wrong? Is there a way to fix this?
Thank you very much
