Re: question about kernel updating

When i upgraded my kernel i had no video after reboot because i didnt emerge the nvidia drivers after the upgrade. I just reinstalled the drivers again and it worked fine. Im sure i had to reinstall mouse drivers again too. All you should have to do is emerge all you drivers again.

Re: why is installling to sabayon so long winded.

Personally, coming from debian based linux over to Sabayon a few weeks ago, i dont mind waiting on software compiling.
