Re: Sony Vaio VPCSB Installation failures

Re: Sony Vaio VPCSB Installation failures

seems like this is the same issue as is occurring in this bug report http://bugs.sabayon.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2210.

Not sure, but it seems this is still an issue.

Sony Vaio VPCSB Installation failures

Ok, so I picked up a brand new sony vaio VPCSB over the weekend. I tried installing Sabayon 6 amd64 kde, but it freezes about at the time that it should be switching to pty7 following kdm startup, but all I get is a blank background and a frozen cursor. I cannot CTR-ALT-F1 to drop to a terminal and ...

Re: X or nvidia_drv segmentation fault

I also experienced the exact same problem on a GeForce Go 6150.

Just read the fix, haven't tried yet to downgrade to older drivers, but I can confirm that this issue also exists with this chipset.

Re: Sabayon Linux 5.0 GNOME and KDE: Stable release

Great work to all involved. I think that I will be doing a fresh install so that I can take advantage of the built-in encryption (as I was thinking about encrypting /home lately). I can't wait!

Re: Equo crashes on any package install attempt

What lxnay means by this is, to fix this issue, do a nano /usr/lib/entropy/client/text_ui.py go a LOOOOOG way down until you hit the line that says : metaopts = {} metaopts['removeconfig'] = configFiles Change that piece of code to metaopts = {} metaopts['removeconfig'] = config_files save and exit....

Re: [Input Needed] Sabayon 5 Brainstorm

These are all great suggestions, how about full drive encryption option? Or at least home partition encryption option as part of base install, ala debian/Ubuntu. Sure not perfect, but would make it easier for us laptop users to use best practices safety.

DEPEND is a build dependency, i.e must be installed before the package RDEPEND is a runtime dependency, i.e must be installed for the package to run to make a patach use diff, however I notice you are changing a system file so you will need to patch package that owns this file instead (can be found...

Re: Miro miro-2.0.3-r1.ebuild HOWTO (advanced)

make a patch and call epatch or use sed to change the gnome line, then add the missing dep to the ebuild? Errm, well, I'm not sure how to write a patch (although I do know how to mod an ebuild to call epatch). Maybe I should learn . . . just don't have the time right now. Sure, I could sed it, but ...
