Question Auto Login won't work after upgrade - Sabayon 5.2

I'm in the process of trying Sabayon 5.2. After the initial install, I had 800 packages to install to upgrade - went very smooth - but on re-booting, the auto login was gone. No problem, I reset using 'run command' 'kdm' and the 'convenience' screen. Checked all the correct places, and re-booted - no auto login, and I can't get it to 'stick' ??

try this
rc-update del sabayon-mce boot

and then set up the autologin in systemsettings as root doing
dbus-launch systemsettings

hope it works!

Thanks for the reply - my grief isn't over yet - I now can't boot at all - The first message I get is "Welcome to grub" and then a black screen and "grub>" - I have booted on the install disc and I can access the hard drive, but I have no idea what I have to do to fix this, (if it's fixable) - What have I done??
