After installing Sabayon 6, I decided to update my system. Per the advice of the wiki, I did a su equo update equo install entropy equo sulfur --relaxed before anything else. Amongst the output from the second command was the following: * Purging current Entropy cache * Compilation and optimization ...

Video is not horrible, but...

Hello everyone, I currently have SL 4.2 KDE installed on my system. I really like Sabayon Linux, but I do have one minor issue. It's the quality of video. It looks good for the most part, but there's a certain, almost graininess to it that's noticeable especially when watching a DVD and with the ima...

When to use Portage/Emerge

I know that ideally you should stick to one package manager to minimize conflicts and system breakage. For most SL users, that would probably be Entropy. However, is there a best practice as to when to use Portage vs Entropy? Based on what I'm reading in the forums and wiki, this is what I think. Ba...

Re: Updated version of a program in Branch 5 not in 4

Looks like I didn't read the Wiki well enough before asking this question. However, I still do need some clarification... It seems that you can download packages yourself from www.sabayonlinux.org and have equo install them that way. Keeping with the Wine example: 1. I download the latest version fr...

Updated version of a program in Branch 5 not in 4

Hello everyone, I've noticed from going to "www.sabayonlinux.org/packages" that there are a few programs (well, more then a few maybe) in Branch 5 that are more up to date then in Branch 4. For the sake of example, let's look at Wine. In Branch 4 it's Wine 1.1.23 and in Branch 5 it's Wine 1.1.26. Le...

Re: crunchbang linux

I've used Crunchbang before. It's a pretty neat distro. Although being based on Ubuntu, it's not as "n00b" friendly (i.e. I had to actually *gasp* edit a config file to get my fonts to look right) as Ubuntu. Still, I liked it, and I liked Openbox (the DE used in Crunchbang).

Re: disto hopping/newbie distro

Just because a distro is easy for "noobs" doesn't mean the distro is for noobs. I believe Sabayon is for anyone who wants a fast, functional, and stylish system.

equo conf update

Hello, According to the wiki entry on entropy, after your first world update, you do a "equo conf update" My question is, since "conf update" is ran to update configuration files, how often would I be required to use this option? Should I do a conf update after every world update? Should I run it ev...

Using "su" to become root

Hello everyone, I have a question regarding doing things as root. Prior to using Sabayon, I used Ubuntu and a few Ubuntu based distros (Mint and CrunchBang), so, I'm used to the "sudo" method of doing things. Let's say for example, I am installing a program, and I want to do it from the Terminal bec...
