Re: Trouble booting live DVD

What i didn't like about the whole thing is that the installer looked very good and it looked like it would handle the grub correctly, but when it was done installing, it didn't handle the other distros well at all. Sabayon is only good if its on a PC all by itself. I'll try Sabayon again in the fut...

Re: Trouble booting live DVD

I changed the order of hdds on the PC. Was able to then boot into Sabayon. But the Sabayon bootloader listed sidux and opensuse but neither of them could boot up. The Sabayon installer did not work as it was supposed to in finding other distros. I had to install Xubuntu over Sidux for now, at least ...

Re: Trouble booting live DVD [Solved]

Found the problem. Somehow with switching a hdd last week it changed the boot sequence. It has been changed back to boot from CDROM first.

Re: Grub not seeing other distros?

Thank you, in the past I once used this entry for PC-BSD: title PC-BSD root (hd1,0) chainloader +1 And this worked fine. Grub has always been very confusing to me and when I once installed Fedora, I tried many different entries and none of them worked. You would think at this point in the evolution ...

Grub not seeing other distros?

I read that the Sabayon grub doesn't see other distros on the same PC: http://planetoss.com/detail.php?id=15 Is this true? I have a test box with sidux and opensuse on it and I would like to use the third hdd for Sabayon 3.5 . Opensuse is the opening grub/bootloader and I would like to add Sabayon t...

Re: Configure display

are you sure your monitor can display that? yes, it's 1440x900 (Samsung SyncMaster 953 BW) which is a very common resolution for a wide 19" screen. Every other distro I've used can, I thought the problem was with the command. maybe I have to add the 1440x900 to all three lines where the 1024x768 is...

Tried it in both standard and enhanced mode, no screen, no changes. the /etc/init.d/xdm restart command did not work. What's ...
