File Roller [Solved]

How do I enable "COMPRESS" as an option in the right click menu for selected files in the file manger (nautilus). I have had it in the past, but it seems to be in the menu sometimes, and other times it is not there. Right now it is missing. Thank you for the help, ( current distro, Sabayon 64 Gnome)...

Re: ISO image not working

I am running an install of Sabayon 13.04 (Gnome) from an .ISO (downloaded from the mirror) at this minute, so I believe the ISO image is not the problem. Any additional information you can supply would be useful. If you just boot straight from the DVD in "live" mode (without installing to the hard d...

Re: New user, my experiences and critque(ish)

If you find VLC an essential, then give XBMC a try. Like VLC, it pretty much plays everything you throw at it. It is (IMHO) the most awesome free software application ever distributed.

? /etc/init.d/ [Solved]

For some time we have used:

Code: Select all

 /etc/init.d/some_service/stop (start, restart)
but I think with systemd that no longer is working. Is there an equivalent command for systemd?
Thank you,
N.D.

Re: TP-LINK WiFi adapter failed after kernel upgrade

I can now confirm the problem is related to kernel build 3.9-r3. I wiped the hard drive, and did a fresh install from 13.04 Gnome 64-bit from the monthly repository. Normal installation with no issues. Installed all updates and kernel 3.8.8, once again, no problems at all except my usual ATI Radeon ...

Re: Updated today and now fails to boot

I am using an ATI 7850 GPU with proprietary (fglrx) drivers. When I updated to Sabayon 13.06 with kernel 3.8.10 (Gnome 64 bit) I had the problem described here (no DM, no terminal window). I booted the live DVD, opened a terminal window, became SU, mounted the Logical Volume lv_root , chroot as Fitz...
