Re: Everything is on fire after system upgrade

Did you run: eselect opengl list
If nvidia is listed, but not marked with an asterisk, you need to run:
eselect opengl set nvidia
reboot

Re: Back to Sabayon

After installing and rebooting, you should run the update command, and then the upgrade command. Then you can start installing other stuff. To install nvidia drivers, you need to match your kernel version with the matching nvidia driver (and nvidia userspace package). You then need to run: eselect o...

Re: 16.11 Live CD failings for me

After installing, open a terminal and gain root access. Then run: equo update. Then run: equo upgrade. Then you can run: equo install firefox.

Re: Problems Installing, help me ?

It's hard to help you because your post is confusing. What did you try to install on? Did you succeed? What "booted up fine"...the live dvd or the installed sabayon? What did you expect to happen after 5 hours?

Re: youtube-dl

Thanks for your response. I installed the latest version from entropy when I realized that there was a newer version than what I had installed. So, the problem was solved, before my post. But there remains the question: Why was the new version not included in any of my upgrades? To my knowledge, thi...

youtube-dl

My youtube downloader quit working some time ago. I discovered that I was using an old version of youtube-dl. Yet my system is fully updated and upgraded. Why did the package manager not include the latest version of youtube-dl?

Re: Youtubevideo

I'm surprised nobody has commented on this yet, so, maybe it's not an issue, but it's usually better to install 3rd party apps from the package manager than downloading and installing from a website. It might integrate better with kde if you use the package manager. I think English is default, so, f...

Re: Black screen blinking cursor (post install)

You say you have no mouse or keyboard. But, have you tried using the key combo of: ctrl + alt + f2 That key combo should give you a login prompt from the "black screen with blinking curser". I don't think I've ever seen it fail. If it does give you a login prompt, login as root, and issue this comma...

Re: How to disable NVIDIA 358 and use 340?

I wonder what card you are trying to use. I had two 200 series card and had to downgrade the kernel to 4.3 to get a 340 driver. But, it didn't work. Then, I noticed there was a 340 driver for the 4.4 kernel, so I ran kernel switcher to get back to my 4.4 kernel. But, it still didn't work....the clos...

Re: Difficulty Installing.

Did you have a complicated install? Sabayon's installer (Calamares) has been known to be less than perfect when it comes to the "custom install" option. If you have to delete, or resize, or create partitions, it might be better to do that with something like gparted. For myself, I usually install to...
