The Ironic thing hear Is I can still install Sabayon Linux , however it involves the "Root Canal" Method's and basicly is mainly a traditional Gentoo build till a specific point has been attained. http://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?title=En:Entropyhttp://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/h ... art1_chap1
Installing Entropy using Portage and the wonderfull just seems to boot Defacto AMD64 Live DVD from gentoo.
/dev/sdb4 =/ and a swap has be parted 250 GB .
/dev/sda = NTFS Windows 7 1 TB vol
/dev/sdb1 = NTFS data
/dev/sdb2 hidden Fat32 Factory recovery imaging
/dev/sdb = 750 Gig Vol .
Gentoo stage 3 has been installed , from Windows 7 I've added the /var/entropy/packages/packages
via VMware sabayon Installed window for a quick peek , and to copy a few working files over to a Live Non VMWare part.
windows is configured with notepad++ Ext2Fsd
for batch tasks i've pre-stuffed the packages tree with a full dump of tarballs pre 6.x least by a matter of weeks 6 weeks atm in age however i can mirror more into them .
used Filezilla to batch mirror ftp trees into the packages root. and or moved them into the appropriate folders as needed.
as thus far the DVD methiods have failed
KDE LDXE Gnome 5.5 or 6.x Kernel Panic FAIL
Networking in this model was atheros , however of late it is the Intel N with WIMAX (cellular) wifi stacks
as well as USB 3 from Fresco logic FL 1000 http://www.frescologic.com/products_show.php?ms=2&ps=1
the Gentoo Live DvD only pauses for a fraction of a second loads the KMod then starts the desktop , however once either Sabayon DVD 5.5 or 6.x (all flavors)
hits this part GAME over
. Kernel Panic
or basically the installer boot catastrophically freezes up
The Sabayon Kernel seems to not have USB3 or something. http://www.asus.com/Notebooks/Gaming_Powerhouse/G73SW/
