Hi, I installed Sabayon 3.5 using live DVD on my Dell Inspiron 9400 machine - Core 2 Duo 1.73 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 120 GB Hard drive.
After installation i immediately got a notification that i have 194 updates available. I started those updates using the Spritz package manager - which ran for almost 1 and half day. Not sure why it took so long. And after updates were done - the Spritz package manager just froze and didnt do anything. I had to hard boot the machine. Please note that my machine was responsive all this while - even while the updates were being installed, or when Spritz froze after all the updates were done. When my machine rebooted - i saw an additional entry in my boot loader - that was for the new kernel version. Not sure why that would happen - ideally it should have updated my existing entry right? And when I selected the new version - the system booted after a small pause. And i can use the system now. I would like to know the reasons behind all the things I observed and would like to know if i have done anything wrongly or did I miss something altogether or I should have done things differently.
Many thanks in advance.
