Well, if you had to reinstall everything probably I wasn't so helpful after all
First of all I learnt to hate NetworkManager, so my advise is to use Wicd; however don't update NetworkManager
or KNetworkManager, because the latest versions may cause some problems, wait for it to become stable.
There is, currently, also an issue with the synaptics touchpad, they are actually working for fixing it, so consider not
updating it too (the package is xf86-input-synaptics)...
If it becomes a problem, the solution is to bring back to the xorg.conf the touchpad configurations.
Equo and Spritz were meant for having an alternative to portage (Gentoo package manager), so you may very well stay away from it
the main difference from portage is that Equo and Spritz give you precompiled software, while emerge builds them just for your machine
from sources (this is why you have to be wise, expert and revdep-rebuild).
Using Entropy will save you from having to run any revdep-rebuild, modify any make.conf file, and so on...
But you will have, more likely, a less optimized and compact system.
As I told you before, see the Sabayon Wiki: http://wiki.sabayonlinux.org/index.php?title=Entropy
(obviously from Sabayon 3.5 you don't need to install Entropy from Portage anymore)
Also, when an update for entropy, equo or spritz is available, be sure to update them first, using:
- Code: Select all
equo install entropy equo spritz
