Subject pretty much sums it up.  Had everything running well on SAGA 1.0 and updated to 1.1 (used the included installer).  Restart and the Vampire logo shows up and then nothing.  What am I missing?

You use Gold 2.7?
Can you download APOLLO OS r48 ?
If yes then I would recommend to try it.

I had no problems updating SAGA on ApolloOS R48 coffin. Maybe your monitor doesn't sync the resolution you set?

Copy DEVS:Picasso96Settings.default to DEVS:Picasso96Settings (if ApolloOS)

Hey Gunnar, yes on 2.7 (x11) and running coffin v48.  Was on SAGA 1.0 with no issues and ran the installer that came with 1.1.  Restarted and get the Vampire splash screen then goes blank...  I think I've figured out a fix but wondering what got overwritten to cause the blank screen issue.  Cheers!

Just in case it's related, I was getting a blank screen on running RTG demos after upgrading to coffin r48. It looks like some of the P96 screen modes (especially low-res) don't agree with the DIGITAL-VIDEO repeater my V500 runs through. After reverting to the screenmode configs from the previous release I have the demos back again and all is well.
