Re: Sabayon may be turn discontinued?

Hello, As you will see I've been a SL user for the past 8 years. It would be a sad day if it would have to go, because it's always been the best distro in terms of graphics, built in codecs, performance and ease of use . Over the past few years the main problems were usually caused by updates and ma...

Re: Sabayon screwed after last night's updates [Solved]

Hello, I decided to mark this thread as SOLVED. The solution for me ultimately was - Install KUBUNTU. It works. As for all your suggesitons, I do appreciate your help, but although I tried very hard to follow your hints the were pretty much to scarce and I am not a real guru. I installed the SL14 ve...

Re: Sabayon screwed after last night's updates

Hello, I don't think you all noticed in my original post (hence the word "screwed" in the subject): errors in an endless loop, no login. I tried the "recover" modes, nothing that would let me login, just an endless loop of errors I cannot login at all in any mode and run any commands, CTRL+ALT+DEL a...

Re: Sabayon screwed after last night's updates

If you don't provide useful information nobody is going to be able to help you. - What repositories are you using? I use the Rigo application which I believe uses Equo. - What video graphics drivers? NVidia on an HP laptop - GDM/KDM/LightDM/Slim? - Plasma Desktop (KDE) / GNOME / Xfce / ....? [/quot...

Sabayon screwed after last night's updates [Solved]

Hello, just yesterday I received about 36 updates. When I rebooted my machine it ended up displaying tons of errors in an endless loop, no login. I tried the "recover" modes, nothing that would let me login, just an endless loop of errors. Is this another case of a non-weekly update rendering the sy...

Re: KDE broken after Skype install on SL 15.1

emul-linux-x86-qtlibs has been dropped from Entropy. (remove it if you didn't!) On amd64 arch we now provide 32bits libraries through the qt packages. (This is what we call "multilib") Theory: Perhaps Entropy got confused because on your system you had the testing repository enabled together with w...

Re: KDE broken after Skype install on SL 15.1

There appears to be a library in skype that qtcore conflicts with specifically "emul linux", I installed qtcore, and skype stopped working so I removed and re-installed skype and rigo stated the qt emul linux package had to be removed to install skype. But after the install skype ran without any is...

Re: KDE broken after Skype install on SL 15.1

Hello, with the first installation I used custom partitions and because I had some trouble with it I did not have enough space, only 35MB in my home directory. I reinstalled SL15 again using autmatic partitioning. No I have 200GB in my /home directory, so this should not be a sproblem. There doesn't...
