Help out with the downloads

If you have any kind of broadband, when you go to work or bed or simply aren't using your bandwidth, please help out by launching bittorrent and setting it with no limits on upload. If everyone does this, we can all get Sabayon in a reasonable amount of time. Do this every day for at least a week to...

MD5?

It's already been posted that the torrents have it. I've already downloaded my copy and I'm waiting for the MD5 before I burn. Speaking of, anyone have the MD5's for the x86 version? Also, please use the torrents and, for Pete's sake, unlock your uploads. Fortunately for me, there were a couple of b...

Differing philosophies

The idea behind Gentoo is to build in what you need, nothing more, nothing less, and compile it from source based on the specifics of your system. Sabayon's installation is pretty much a cookie cutter install. I mean, look at the install options: x86 or x86-64. That's it. The installation routine as...

Have you tried this out? http://www.sabayonlinux.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3008 You can save your changes and settings to your usb by typing "sabayon xsistence" at boot, this also works with the liveCD/DVD, if you have a usb present. I'll have to check that out. Thanx for the heads up. Oh yeah, and...

hmmm I guess it would depend on what was being updated, but if you're running a world update everyday it shouldn't take long to compile and you can add commands like --resume --skip first so that if emerge gets hung up on a package it will resume and keep on going till it finishes. People do do thi...

I don't mess with CHOST, but I have changed and edit CFlags and USE and recompiled without problems. Same here. But I do find it frustrating that Sabayon is compiled for an i586, which is about the level of the original Pentium or K6 processors. I think it would be safe to move to i686 and set the ...

That attitude is why Linux will not make the desktop in the same way that M$ has. Well, Gentoo will never make it on the end Luser's desktop. Don't get me wrong, Gentoo is not for those with a weak stomach, but it is also the most optimized distro you can get. As far as setting up the make.conf file...

Full install on USB Flash drive?

I'd like to see Sabayon to be installable to a USB thumb drive. I know that others allow this, but it's still a "LiveCD" type install. With flash drives getting cheaper, a 4 GB USB drive should be enough to hold the OS, and still have the same hardware detection as the LiveCD, but one that is not co...

In the middle of an upgrade

I currently run on an old AthlonXP 3200, but I'm about to upgrade to a Core2 Duo (got it at Fry's for $170, with motherboard! Yeah, it's an E6300 and the MB is AGP, but that just makes it easier to upgrade!) I'm a pretty die-hard AMD guy, but the price was too good to pass up!
