I have a gateway media center edition - gt5040
Pentium D 820 (Duel Core)
250 gb SATA hard drive
Intel Graphics media card accelerator 950
1024 mb ddr2 ram
I believe it boots with the EM64T system.
What is the best verision of Sabayon for this machine and is there any hidden traps I need to look for?
You'll want the up and coming SabayonLinux rc2 x86-64 edition. Boot with option "smp" to enable use of your dual core. Boot with "xgl" to fully use your vid card (intel graphics 900 and above are supported for xgl). The 64 bit kernel we have is generic 64 bit processor, so you should recompile for your EM64T version (just change one thing). Also, if you still want to use media center, then we're adding media center boot options to the rc2 release which will fully use it
Your remote control may not work though....but we'd be happy to help. Stay tuned for the mediacenter boot options
