Re: Problems with Sabayon 6

Well, it was my lucky day. I first tried Sabayon 7 gnome and that was even worse than Sabayon 6. It installed allright but after reboot it just gave me a little login screen completely frozen. Nothing to do but a hard shutdown. So I tried Sabayon 7 KDE version and that was completely different. Afte...

Re: Problems with Sabayon 6

I can say the Sabayon partition was not even half full before I formatted it with Gparted (I always use Gparted before I install a new distro) Second, you counted right I am having 9 li...

Re: gscan2pdf (good app.) and how to install using local overlay

Hey,hey,hey!
So I did as you said and tried again to manifest and merge-same error:file size does not match.
Then I deleted the manifest in /usr/local/portage/media-gfx/gtkimageview/ and tried again to make a new manifest.
It did and I did emerge-it worked!!!
Going to do the others now-hold on!

Now for gscan2pdf I downloaded another file gtkimageview-1.6.3 installed it in distfiles,remanifested,remerged-same error. Emerged gtk+-2.14.7-r1 (went OK) and redid the whole ...
