I'm new in Sabayon (I have found this distro few months ago but after having tried to install it on my HP-DV7 many times with no success I gave up)
I've just discovered that CINNAMON is available (I love it and tried it with LMDE)
So here is my wish: How to create a minimalist Cinnamon variant?
I tried this scenario without any success:
1.Fresh installation from CoreCDX 8 (when I will know sabayon better, I will try to start from SpinBase...)
2a. equo install xf86-video-intel xf86-video-ati (my laptop has a switchable hybrid AMD/Intel graphic card
2b. equo install gdm
2c. equo install cinnamon
3. modify /etc/conf.d/xdm in order to launch gmd (replace "lxdm" by "gdm")
If I choose "GNOME" in GDM login screen then GNOME-3 starts correctly in standard mode (not the fallbacck one) => good
If I choose "cinnamon" then I get an error message (something gone wrong...), session is closed and I'm back in gdm
Installing meta package gnome-core-apps fixes the issue but I think this package too huge for my initial wish...
I guess it contains one or several packages needed by cinnamon
So my question is : which package(s) have I to install before step 3?
