systemd Issues

Sabayon has already switched to systemd, Gentoo has not. The Gentoo developers think it is not ready for prime time (incomplete and too many bugs). Here is a recent discussion concerning problems with systemd: http://igurublog.wordpress.com/2014/04/03/tso-and-linus-and-the-impotent-rage-against-syst...

Sabayon Kernel Confusion?

I installed XFCE Daily yesterday.

Code: Select all

eselect kernel list
1 linux-3.8.0-sabayon *
2 linux-3.8.0-server
The kernel should be linux-3.8.0-sabayon.

uname says the kernel is linux-3.8.0-server.

How can I find out for sure which kernel is actually being used?

LXDE and XFCE Daily , X Server Not Working [Solved, Maybe]

I tried to install LXDE Daily yesterday and the Live DVD works OK but the X server does not work after installation. It appears to be a video driver issue. I fooled around with it a little but made no progress. Since LXDE is still experimental, I tried XFCE but it appears to have the same problem (L...

Random Crashes Using SpinBase

I am getting random crashes on 2 different systems, both started with Sabayon 10 SpinBase (or a subsequent daily). I am seeing the following lines in /var/log/messages Oct 18 10:50:01 localhost cron[13287]: (root) CMD (test -x /usr/sbin/run-crons && /usr/sbin/run-crons) Oct 18 10:59:01 localhost cro...

Re: Ping Problem with Sabayon 10

What networking equipment do you have on your home network? A single router or hub? Are all computers on your network communicating directly via a single router, or do you have any interposing equipment such as a network switch? Also, when you boot your old computer, does it appear on the router's ...

Ping Problem with Sabayon 10

I put Sabayon 10 SpinBase on an old (over 10 years) Celeron computer with 192MB RAM. It runs but I have a problem pinging or sshing to it from other computers on my LAN. The firewall is off. When I 1st boot the offending computer, it does not respond to ping or ssh but if I ping one of my other comp...

Static IP Address Problem with Sabayon 10

Using Sabayon 10 SpinBase and wpa_supplicant. Using global naming in /etc/conf.d/net no longer works. Worked with SL 8 and 9. Example: config_essid="192.168.0.25/24" route_essid="default via 192.168.0.5" This causes an IP address of 169.254.88.244 to be assigned to wlan0 with default gateway 169.254...

Re: ufw, iptables masquerading config

Let me reiterate that I am not a network or iptables expert and I am not sure exactly what the 2nd line of your firewall does but it is likely the cause of your problem because the X server uses the tcp protocol and I do not know if it changes any defaults. The X server uses tcp port 6000 by default...

Re: How to find the cause of a system crash? [Solved]

I found the problem, failing memory (RAM). I had to go through the following rigamorole: I tested the memory using Mem86+ and it tested bad. I tried reseating the RAM sticks, switching sockets, running just 1 stick (4 GB) at a time. One of the sticks tests good, the other bad. I looked on the G.Skil...
